We'll add one more graphic and one more photo to give our cover a bit more punch.
Open the Macintosh Finder window and navigate to the Assets folder.
Drag the file over the Pages document window to a position between the center and right column.
The logo appears on the page.
In the Finder window, select the file fountain.jpg.
Drag it over the pages document and drop it near the top of the gradient-filled text box.
We no longer need that column break, the photo is doing the job so let's delete it.
Select the logo graphic and drag it to center it in the two text columns.
The text will flow around the graphic.
Now select the fountain image.
Switch the Inspector window to the Graphic Inspector pane.
Close the Colors window.
Click the Metrics button to switch to the Metrics Inspector.
Click the View icon in the toolbar and choose Hide Layout.
Click the View icon again and choose Hide Invisibles.
Save your file.
That's it! Our cover design is complete. Now we just need to set up how the two stories will continue on the inside pages.
