I made the attached gift box to look like a book and I would like to engrave a book cover on it. This is a retirement gift for our editor and the cover is the last book she worked on for us. I have searched the forum and tried different settings, but I am not happy with the results (see attached). I know the photo is not necessarily a good candidate, but would appreciate any advice anyone might have. I am also considering making the box in maple to help with the contrast.
My best attempt, so far.
