Organization name
"Man Meets Stove" Book Cover
Description of the organization and its target audience

Man Meets Stove is a humorous cookbook for men who've never cooked anything without a microwave. We wrote the Man Meets Stove cookbook as we had observed that the men-desperately-in-need-of-cooking-help market was vastly underserved.

Industry

Food & Drink

Description

Target Audience:

The audience is men that want to learn to cook from a humorous cookbook.

Requirements:

Thanks for your interest in participating in our Cookbook cover competition!

We are looking for a cookbook cover that catches the attention of men that want to learn to cook from a humorous cookbook.

We want interesting fonts, colors, art, and design.

You may submit any kind of artwork or photography, as long as it is yours and you give us the rights to use it.

The final trim size for the cover of the book will be 8.5" x 11" and
the cover art/picture will need to extend another 0.125 inches wide and high beyond the edges of the book cover.

The spine will be 0.2347 inches.

If you lay out the complete cover, follow these guidelines:

Title of the book, "Man Meets Stove"
Author's Names: Jim Madden and Thomas Jacques

We would like the cover to convey funny/humor, or you can add text to convey that.

On the back cover:

“Are you a male or do you own a male between the ages of 18 and 35 that is desperately in need of NOT being single?

Man Meets Stove is a cookbook for men who've never cooked anything without a microwave. We wrote the Man Meets Stove cookbook as we had observed that the men-desperately-in-need-of-cooking-help market was vastly underserved.

If you are looking to prepare a 10-course Five Star meal, this is not your cookbook. This cookbook will teach you to make good grub and please your ladies tongue.

This cookbook will help men cultivate skills, cooking and otherwise, that will assist them in their fledgling attempts to date women. You can thank us later, ladies."

Notes

99Designs FAQ answers:

Am I allowed to use clipart or stock images?

As a general rule of thumb, do not use stock or clipart images.

Most licenses for such images are non-transferable (meaning you can’t just give the license to the contest holder), and don’t let you use the image in a design which is to be trademarked (such as a logo).

If you really want to use stock images or clipart in your designs, please read when you can use these images.

Keep in mind that contest holders aren’t going to be happy if they are legally pursued over copyright issues arising from your work — and you’ll be liable for any costs and damages they incur!

      For those of you using humans for the cover, we shot a few photos of us for you to use. We hope they are helpful.

      For those of you not using humans for the cover, don't worry, we like a lot of your covers too!

      If you need to use stock images, please verify that they are able to be transferred to Man Meets Stove, or in other words that you purchase a right for us too, or let me know what the cost to purchase that right is.

      We just want to ensure that we own the right to legally use that photo.
