This is just a tip off for all those people interested in matt (or matte for those on the other side of the pond) laminate as a cover option on Lightning Source's covers. Lightning Source are now offering matt laminate on paperback covers. Not seen any of them yet, but I shall be putting out some new books soon, so might give it a go with one of them.

Shows someone, somewhere is paying attention to customer requests. Yay!

Saw this when I was putting in the specs for a template. I'm eager to see what matte covers will look like. I prefer them because the gloss sometimes takes away from the art.

The other good thing about matte lamination is that readers don't yet associate it with self-published books.

That is exciting news.
