Mixture book cover proposal

Here is a proposal for the cover of the mixture book on Mixture Estimation and Applications we are editing, with a stylised rendering of Buachaille Etive Mor… I am not sure it sufficiently fits the topic of the book, other than being taken a few hours and 107 miles from the start of the meeting at ICMS (!), so the cover may end up with a more scientific picture. However, this is my favourite sight when approaching Glencoe, Buachaille rising by itself from Etive Mor, especially with abundant snow and crisp cold sunny skies as I got last March…. Other than those aesthetic considerations, the book is very close to production. I spent Tuesday working on the index and the proofs should be sent to the authors pretty soon.

  4. Suggestion: how about a picture of *several* of those mountains (say, the chain)? That would remind of the multimodal aspect of mixtures.

  5. Gotta vote, STRONGLY against. Doesn’t really evoke mixture models (a topic I love) for me at all.
