How lucabaumgart started their book cover journey
Sebastian Lechstein was born in Kirchheim unter Teck, Germany. He always has been interested in the art of writing and storytelling. After one year of seeing the world, he decided to write his own Fantasy Roman. "Faolans Schatten" is his first book ever published.
"Faolans Schatten", engl. "Shadow of Faolan", is a Fantasy Roman which tells about the young man Faolan, who fights in the German Revolution of 1848 in the south west of Germany.
After getting executed, he returns stonger than before, ready to face his enemies. With his father and his friends, he hides in the Black Forest and becomes a robber and leader of a movement. The Black Forst is full of magic moments and secrets.
But Faolan has a dark secret and soon, has to lead the whole revolution against the prussians and fight his strongest enemy in the forest.
Readers are: Especially Women and Men, who want to feel the power of living in the Black Forest, and rest from their lifes. People who are interested in history of germany and also like Fantasy Romans. The book firstly appears on the german market, so it is for the german language only.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
The dominating colours should be black, white and blue.
The letters should be good to read and fall into the eye. (Colours: White, Gold, Silver) choose what you want but has to be ligh
I want strong contrasts in the cover. Under the headline should be two long wings, which spread as far a the letters. I attached a picture, but the wings should be smaller and more spread in the length. I want them in detail, they are wings of a rave. They should be directly under the letters.
The background of the cover is the blue and black but not too dark.
Sebastian Lechstein should appear on the bottom of the cover.
In the middle I want Faolan himself. His colours should be black and a bit of blue (you can also play with white).
He wears a big hat (pitcure attached) and a long cape, all black. He has a long sword and should make a power pose. But you mostly see his dark silhoutte. I attach a picture, where you can get inspiration.
In the background should be a rider and his horse, all black. The rider has a flag in his hand, but everything is black, you just see his "shadow".
Between the headline and the figures, should be a dark sky with stars. I attach a picture, you can get inspiration from it.
