Does this front cover look good? Watch

    I'm making a front cover for my project on Hadrian's Wall. It's supposed to be creative. My first impressions is that the font doesn't quite match the style. Also, are the model roman buildings mounted on the map out of perspective? If I had photoshop I could rotate them, but I'm using only publisher. The gold shield is actually a gold coin with Hadrian on. I put a laurel wreath around his head, an SPQR banner, and put some ivy hanging out the bottom to match the green ivy in the writing.

    What do you think? How can I improve it? It is A3 size btw. The top is not clipped. That's just how it is.

    But it's mounted on an ordinance survey map. I'm thinking about maybe changing the map to an older one...

    Is this even better? I've included the Pediment at the top with the figures on. Also managed to fix the building perspective (I think). Do the buildings look like they sit on the map at the right angle now?

    Think it might be a bit much now...

    I decided to remove the 3D models and instead just use the map as a normal background.

    Does this look neater and better? Or do you think the rotated map with the models looks better?

    I hope so lol

    This is the layout of the contents page (and possibly subsequent pages too) Thought I'd keep it simple and artistic. I'm gonna put the wall in the middle.

    But do you think it'd look better with a roman mosaic border (especially the front page)?

    I've updated the front cover. Moved the scroll from the contents to the front cover.
