My book is about how to pack light and travel with just carry-on (hand) luggage. It's aimed at both long-term travellers (i.e backpackers on a round-the-world trip) and those on shorter trips.
Travelling carry-on only has many advantages including saving time at airports and money on checked baggage fees.
The main concept I want to evoke on the cover is freedom—by packing light, you can explore the world easily without the burden of too much stuff.
The cover must include the following:
Title: The Carry-On Traveller
Subtitle: The Ultimate Guide to Packing Light
Author Name: Erin McNeaney
I want the cover to be bold, eye-catching, and beautiful. I would like it to be something I can share on social media.
The cover must look good as a thumbnail size in the Amazon store, and the title should be legible. It should also work in black and white on the Kindle.
You can see ideas of book covers I like on Pinterest. I have included notes on each pin of what I like about the image: https://uk.pinterest.com/simonfairb…spiration/
I don't want the design to use stock photos or include an old-fashioned suitcase—this has been overused in the travel space. Something illustrated with striking imagery would be ideal.
I only need an eBook cover, not a paperback version (although I may want to create one later). I'd like the final cover as a lossless file (e.g png or tiff) and the original file (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.).
The dimensions should be at least 3000 x 4500 pixels.
