Superhighway book cover.

It is said that a picture speaks a thousand words. Regarding the cover of Superhighway book, do you relate cover and the content of this book? Is there any relationship between the cover and the content?

The cover design is quite simple and more of an abstract. But it equally conveys a strong relationship with the content. I can see a clear connection between the cover design and story particularly on the conceot of travelling through the internet. So, I totally agree that this is the perfect cover for this book.

I think that cover page connects to the message that says knowledge is the key that unlocks the success door.

The content of the book matches the cover. I guess it was derived from the experiences that Alex went through while traveling in the fiber optic cables.

I agree with is. Or that represents the path to the door.

There are probably better options that might replace the current cover of Superhighway, but I really like the cover as-is. It's abstract, but it reminds me of the images Alex describes when he's traveling along the internet superhighway itself.

The cover isn’t anything powerful but I understand it, similar to the book title!

Yes, there is relationship between cover and content of the book. It represents the scene of optical passageways through which Alex travels.

The cover seems to be kind of abstract, but at the same time it links the cover to the story. When I look at the cover, I feel like it looks as if you are traveling through something. It also has the lights on it and that reminds me of the light packets Alex talks about.

I like the cover. As you all said, it is abstract, but it gives the vibe of a fast-paced adventure with a futuristic touch. It fits the title "Superhighway" well enough, too.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
