Here's another simple cover experiment, this time for a fictional UK teenage girls' annual from 1980.
I've tried to replicate the sort of fonts and colours that they would have used for this sort of thing back then, and I think the picture looks about right from what I can remember. (Knitting was a big thing. Ah, simpler times!)
Only Inkscape and Scribus used.
There are probably plenty of improvements that could be done so don't be shy in speaking up.
