Check out ixav's Book cover contest…
La vie sans détour
« Away from the extremely well-trodden paths » Try something different to live a quality life The subject matter: a totally new approach to life. An active way of life never offered before and open to all. Respects the individual. Why have we got to this stage? To these beliefs? To spirituality? To unending intellectual analyses? To childish materialism? To accumulating knowledge ‘just in case’? At what moment did we go off course, heading towards these pale imitations of life? And why has that chatterbox in our heads now started to lull our senses to sleep and generate this fear? Is it possible to go back to where it all started? A simple, full life with a calm mind which serves us well? Yes, because it is as natural as seeing or breathing. Do you use a particular method or knowledge to see and breathe naturally all day long? We have the answers. The moment to put it all into action has just arrived. Thus begins a dialogue with life, resulting in vigilance devoid of concerns. But that… is another story.

Book cover type
Size : 148 x 210mm Spine : 12mm Bleed : 8 mm File format : PSD New cover for « La vie sans détour » (Life without detour / Plainly life) This book needs a new cover that will keep the cover spirit of: « Everything that happens near me speaks to me » (http://lhommevrai-diffusion.com/OHV/homme-vrai-real-man-organisation/) and « La sagesse en action » http://www.lhommevrai-diffusion.com/ebook/product.php?id_product=42 Cover idea : We don’t have a specific idea for the cover. It has to keep the spirit of the 2 books “Everything that happens near me speaks to me” and “La sagesse en action”. The spirit means the same kind of design and it can be with the sea and beach. Of course designers have the freedom to propose any idea. The master word is ACTION. The main idea is that life can be direct, simple, all the teachings are found when we are in action. Which is impossible when we loose time in endless happiness or spiritual search (Détour).
