John316-20 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Help White Robe Press with a new book or magazine cover
Check out John316-20's Book cover contest…
We are the publisher of a new book that will be marketed to both religious and secular audiences entitled: The Deathless War: Surviving the Final Battle between Good and Evil. This first book will have a sub-title: Prepare to Declare.
What's your vision?
1 - We would like a road down the middle of the front cover that is split down the middle representing the aftermath of an earthquake. The road should be in perspective and stay within the bottom half of the page. 2 – At the top of the front cover page in the sky, we need meteor showers raining down with fire. On the back cover page we need two (2) asteroid strikes to be represented. 3 – In the middle of the front and back cover (separating the ground and sky) we need buildings that are in disrepair that are set on fire from the meteor showers. The U.S. Capital should be on the front cover spanning the spine and crossing over to the rear cover (the center of the dome should be the center of the spine of the book). Then just have other buildings on fire filling in across the rest of the middle (or horizon) of the front and back cover. 4 – On the front cover, we need a sun that is darkened and reddish from all of the smoke of the burning buildings. On the rear cover we need the moon having the same issue. Let’s have the front cover represent day and the rear cover represent night. So the buildings on the back cover will be glowing as they are on fire at night. This should provide for a dark fearful feeling. 5 – As far as people are concerned, we need people who look like they do in their physical body, and some that are “ghosted-out” as if they are a picture negative. Maybe the rear cover (which is dark because it is night) these “ghosted” people are glowing. On the front cover, just show one on either side of the road but on one side he is in his regular body looking down the road (left), and on the right side of the road (mirrored across the middle of the road) he is in the “ghosted” form.
A few comments. The font used within the book for chapter titles, page headers, and chapter sections is Copperplate Gothic if it works with your design. The design project is for a perfect bound 5.5 x 8.5 book cover. Page count will be approximately 345 pages after final formatting for spine width. We will supply back cover content after the initial selection round and ISBN code scan to the finalist. Just provide some space for now. The front cover will also be utilized for ebooks and we will need the winner to provide those formats. Finally, the use of royalty free images are not prohibitive, but our final selection criteria will prefer original content over their use. We appreciate your interest in this project and look forward to the design solutions presented. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to ask and we would be happy to direct you down the right path. Thank you. ::Back cover synopsis:: For millenniums, every generation has raised their heads to the sky in amazement while trying to make sense of their place in the universe. Humanity may have initially thought they were the focal point, watching the sun, moon, and stars circle their position, but through technological advancements, we have come to learn our planet is but a drop of water in an ocean of galaxies. Our generation now fully understands how insignificant we really are against the vastness of space. However, are we truly insignificant, or the preeminent importance of everything? We may feel small as an individual against the backdrop of seven-billion people across the globe, but is this the truth or a lie? Is it possible that humans are monumentally important where an unseen battle literally rages for every life? Obviously, war has existed over the entire course of history, but something unexplainable is happening throughout the world that is difficult to identify. Conflicts in the traditional sense between warring nations have now spilled over into the streets amongst the citizenry. One cannot turn on the television or pick up a paper without noticing a significant percentage of reporting is dedicated to conflicts in one form or another. Riots, rebellions, and revolutions are not only commonplace, but rapidly intensifying year-over-year. This begs the question, “Where is mankind headed?” Are you prepared for the truth? ::Author Name:: J.W. Basso ::Spine Width:: 0.784"

And then… they selected a winner!
The job was to design a print and ebook book cover for a new popular psychology book. Tanja's first design impressed me so much - she had taken elements of what I had asked for in the brief but added twists and made it so much more beautiful and 'right' for the book than I'd imagined. She has been incredibly responsive to feedback and ideas and the final design is absolutely perfect. Thanks so much Tanja!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
