The minor fourth the major fifth

So I went back home, and looked at the books I made. Immediately I noticed that the fornts on the back cover were too blurry. Also, the book was really small, which made the writing even blurrier. So I told this to Ido (A writer and a graphic designer among his many talents, for those of you who are just joining the action right now), and he made the cotrast better.
Then I waited for about three weeks before I talked to the Lucy From Sifrut, biting my fingernails throughout the entire period.
She said fine they would distribute us, but the books were too small, and too thin, and what is this silly idea to put a dark background for the back cover. I felt really stupid for a few minutes but then I remembered that I'm new in this business, so I'm supposed to learn new things every day, right?
Then we went to the printers, and they had a few things to say about the contrast of the side cover, because apparently it's difficult to wrap the cover around the book very accurately, so you don't want it to show if they missed a bit.
So after all of this I had the sixth cover, which is what I gave the printers about ten days ago. I should have six hundred book tomorrow!
BTW, the next time we print, we should leave 3mm from each side of the cover, just to be on the safe side. I told you I'm learning something new every day!
