I made a simple cover for my future own book (in french) dev-to-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/i/...

Do you like that kind of style ?

the font and colors look good, but it's a lot of words! still overall feels professional, nice job.

Yes but it's for the frenches :D Yours don't have so many words so it should be even easier to do the cover :)
