Planets of Peril

Jupiter

I'm trying to convey just how big Jupiter is - all my other planet pictures have been pretty small, this time I want something BIG. So I've put the image in the background of the first page covering the planet. Text isn't final yet, I may put in some facts and figures for Jupiter before diving into the moons, and remember this is a 1930s vision of Jupiter, not modern astronomy.

I'd be grateful if people could take a look (and possibly print it if they can spare the ink/toner) and tell me what they think. Does it print well? Or will it just be a nuisance?
