    Book cover illustration

    I have just been commissioned to create the cover of a man's book, and I'm pretty psyched! I'm being sent an electronic copy of the book this weekend so that I can get a feel of what the book is about and hopefully be inspired, but I was hoping you all could help me with the technical aspects of this. This is the man's first book and it is self published, so he doesn't know much more about covers than I do.

    What type of paper or canvas should I use? I'm assuming something without pores, but I'm not sure.
