Descripción del libro
The Pyramids of Giza have been fascinating humanity for more than 4500 years. Who built them? How? And why? And why have so many people been prompted to believe so many weird things about them?
Join in one of the greatest intellectual adventures in history alongside the people who rediscovered the pyramids in the Middle Ages, then gradually plumbed their depths and learned some of their secrets over the centuries that followed. You'll meet adventurers and scholars, scientists and charlatans along the way. And finally, you'll journey back to the very beginning of recorded history to meet the extraordinary people who built them in the first place. Many fictions have been told about the Pyramids of Giza -- but the truth is the most amazing tale of them all.
Público al que se apunta
My target is the intellectually curious lay reader -- someone who wants to learn more about the Pyramids of Giza in an accessible, narrative-oriented way.

Necesidades de diseño
Please have a look at The Analog Antiquarian, the website where this book originated, to get an idea of my aesthetic for this volume and for the eventual series as a whole: https://analog-antiquarian.net. It should be clean and professional, conveying serious intent but not offputting. (This isn't an academic book.) If it's possible to echo some of the design elements of the website in the book design, such as the favoring of cool whites and grays, that would be great. "Serious but approachable -- and interesting!" is the message we want to convey. We want to convey enthusiasm, not stodginess.
Note that I have plans to continue this series, hopefully for a long time to come. If I can find the right artist/designer, it could lead to many more projects.
I've attached the Creative Commons image I use for these articles on the website. Perhaps you can incorporate it into the book cover.
Lo que debe evitarse
This is a self-published book, but I desperately want to avoid that tacky self-published look. You know -- ugly Photoshopped art, garish designs. It should look as sophisticated as any of the Amazon Kindle volumes from "real" publishers. Less is definitely more here. We want something more minimalist than maximalist.
