I am looking for a book cover (front and back with variable spine spine width) for a non-fiction book on autograph collecting.
Title: Autograph Collecting Secrets
Subtitle: Tools and Tactics for Through-The-Mail, In-Person and Convention Success
This will be published through CreateSpace at a standard 9"x6" size.
Author: Troy A Rutter
Foreword by: Jack Smalling
Front Cover Details:
The subject of the book is modern autograph collecting, so please refrain from parchment/pen designs.
For copyright reasons, I don't think I can use any photographs of actual celebrities on the cover or their autographs. Some ideas include:
images of people holding up photos in the air
movie premiere fans behind a barricade
Non-identifiable celebrity signing autographs
Note: Any images must be in the public domain or available for purchase/license for less than $100.
Please AVOID cliches such as the logo from "The Secret" or merely the title being wrote out with a pen/quill.
I am open to creative, professional designs. I don't really see any similar topics on 99 designs, so do not have any I would recommend for inspiration.
For the back:
Carry over the color/design from the front, allowing for actual text in a separate layer that will come later. Should include a space for my photo and bio at the bottom, and usual ISBN/copyright information.
