The book is 6"x9"
TRIM is 15.24x 22.86cm
I have decided to do KDP Publishing
It has a spine - page count is 125
Fonts should be clean, crisp and easy to see
The mood of this book is Survival, Identity, Vulnerability and Joy
The aesthetic of the book is a play on heather, a flower or a weed, depends on the region. Heather is a purple flower and should have an aspect of being on the cover but does not have to dominate the cover. This book is about survival, getting out of that darkness (the weeds), and claiming my own identity
I like an illustrated look rather than stock images (photos).
This is my 1st book, an introduction of me and my poetry. I am happy to share any poetry to help with inspiration.
I want the front of the cover to flow over to the back.
The book has 5 chapters and each has a definition (hoping this may help with ideas for the cover):
Chapter 1 - Blooming
Meraka (v) may_ray_kee - to do something with soul and creativity. To have passion, or love, to put something of yourself into your work.
Chapter 2 - Unfolding
TACENDA (n.) -Things better left unsaid; matters passed over in silence.
Chapter 3 - Flourishes
APODYOPSIS (v.) - The act of mentally undressing someone.
Chapter 4 - The Garden
REDAMANCY (n.) -The act of loving the ones who love you; a love returned in full.
Chapter 5 - Wildflowers
AUREATE (adj.) -Pertaining to the fancy or flowery words used by poets.
