Roll credits! The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes

The cover credits section in The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes includes just the necessary acknowledgements for the resources I used in making the book cover. However, I wanted to provide a more comprehensive list for anyone who might want to use the same resources for their own cover or ebook.

Apologies if this reads like the end credits for a Pixar movie, only without the fun little animations…
