Chiron Publications got their new book cover by running a design contest:
DONALD TRUMP & NARCISSISM BOOK - A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump
Check out Chiron Publications's Book cover contest…
Concern about the perils of narcissism on the national and global level has been expressed in newspapers, blogs, magazine articles and a spate of recently released books. Political analysts have invoked the word narcissism in the 2016 United States political process. Therapists have begun to use contemporary public figures including Donald Trump to illustrate narcissistic features. This book examines the many facets of narcissism, including global concerns on narcissism, personal issues of narcissism, mythological aspects and the current “Trump Phenomenon” seen in the US today. Chiron Publications is a 33 year old book publishing company, focusing on psychological books. We have published nearly 200 books since 1983. We are publishing a book on Narcissism that is inspired by what has been demonstrated by the presidential candidates during the 2016 primary election season. The book explores narcissism from a depth psychology perspective while also examining contemporary dimensions of narcissism like Donald Trump’s unexpected popularity. One chapter explores historically similar events in the 20th century. The myth of Narcissus and Echo is featured in several chapters. Our target audience is any reader interested in acquiring better understanding of what narcissism is and its potentially destructive effects, from the personal level to the national and international level. It will also be useful to people who work with narcissists, live with narcissists, and who are under the authority of narcissists
What's your vision?
We would like a 5.5 x 8.5 inch book cover designed with the title: “A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump”. The book will be comprised of chapters written by approximately 12 different authors, many of whom have been best-selling authors. Because some authors are very recognizable names, we may favor designs that incorporate a list of the approximately 12 names on the front cover without interfering with the elements of graphic design. We would prefer not to have a direct image of Donald Trump on the cover. We prefer to also not have a cartoon or caricatured depiction of Donald Trump either, although we will not rule out designs strictly on this criteria if other elements are compelling and effective. Designers are encouraged to strive toward compelling images, but also ones that are neither inflammatory nor defaming The cover should bring attention to the dangers of narcissism, both the dangers of arrogance, entitlement and bullying behavior, perhaps within a political sphere, but also in the home or other areas of life. Ideal designs may incorporate a political influence that preserves the broader scope of this book. We want a cover that “pulls people into it”, even when viewed as a postage stamp sized image online. We want it to be compelling, but not insulting; Powerful, yet still tasteful. This book is already receiving considerable advance attention so the designer we select may also receive attention for their design.
Even though it may crowd the cover, please place all the authors on the front cover: Contributing Authors: Clarissa Pinkola Estés Jean Shinoda Bolen James Hollis Nancy Swift Furlotti Susan Rowland Kathryn Madden James Wyly Leonard Cruz Steven Buser Thomas Patrick Lavin Jaqueline West Alden Josey Nathan Schwartz-Salant John McClain Eve Maram Trim size (dimension of the front cover) is 5.5 inches in width x 8.5 inches in height. Make sure to use the Chiron logo found in the data files. The back cover should have the website: www.ChironPublications.com. We will be adding a description to the back cover. It should be available relatively soon. While not absolute, we request designers use Photoshop when possible. We will eventually need 2 slightly different versions for the cover: one paperback and one dustjacket (hard cover). We’ll then need 4 files – 2 final print- ready PDF’s (paperback and hard cover), and the two Photoshop files they were made from. We anticipate adding extra chapters to this book over the next 6 months and request that the cover designer be willing to give us follow up versions with a slightly larger spine width on occasion.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
