In need of a full book cover for a Non Fiction Manual (front/spine/back) as well as front only for eBook (attachment is paperback template I used for the original)
Must abide by Industry Standard Rules:
Requirements for the size of your cover art have an ideal height/width ration of 1.6, this means:
- A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side
- For best quality, your image would be 1563 pixels on the shortest side and 2500 pixels on the longest side
- Use color images when possible using RGB (red, green, blue) color mode. The attached image is the one I have used to brand the Zen Jiu Jitsu books so far, but it needs some color and manipulation as it is quite common in this sector. The image is a vector so please feel free to manage it as best you can.
- Print book size (spine, etc) is in attachment. 5.5 x 8.5
Book Title, Author name & tagline MUST appear on front cover
Back Cover will have Synopsis and blurb, the space in the bottom left on the back cover must remain within Createspace guidelines. They will add the barcode. See attached PSD.
Design Notes: The book cover must be provided as a PSD with images and font styles attached. The plan is to use the cover with a slightly different color for each copy as we plan to roll out several Zen Jiu Jitsu manuals.
This new design should be based for Zen Jiu Jitsu then it can be adapted slightly to be used for the ZJJ Journal (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1482667665). This will allow us to use the one cover for the next three manuals which will cover the student from white to black belt.
We are not married to the black and white image design, if you think you can design something more creative then please blow our minds!
Time period: present.
Black was the original color for the first book, but I would prefer something more eye catching - please experiment with your own vision.
The book is conceptual and does not demonstrate any techniques. It is aimed at helping men and women to stay with the Jiu Jitsu program. It's is philosophical and conceptual in much of it's method. Please experiment, the cover should reflect a professional system. The reviews so far are stunning, the system is really helping students old and new.
BE CREATIVE!! We want to see what you come up with to help market this amazing system! Thank you!
