Title: The 100 Best Barbecue Restaurants in America
Possible subtitle or banner: (something like) 365 Restaurants. 48 States. 1 Man. 1 Year.
Author: Johnny Fugitt
Ideally I want to convey that there is a story behind the book, not simply a list of restaurants. Initially I had a vision of food, a map, my logo, my picture, etc. all on the front cover. I tend to appreciate more minimalist design, though. So I would like to try to convey that there is a story and list of restaurants as well without it being super crowded.
I've also thought about somehow incorporating a chicken, pig and cow track of barbecue sauce into it somehow. Perhaps on the back. I'm not set on any of these ideas, though. I'm on 99 Designs because I'm interested to see what you can come up with!
I could possibly see something evoking senses of vintage, historic, road trips or Americana. I'm not set on using the logo, either.
I have attached a fair amount of photography, but have more if needed.
Also interested in seeing ideas/designs for the back cover.
