I wrote a memoir about growing up dirt poor and rising above my circumstances. It is called Glad Farm, inspired by the gladiolus farm my parents started in the 1940s. The venture failed before I was born, and my family lived in deep rural poverty for decades. It will target a "baby boomer" audience.

A book cover for my memoir Glad Farm. I am participating in a book contest, and my preliminary design -- which looked like a vintage garden catalog -- was rejected. I submitted a rough mockup of a design using an old 1948 photo of my sister as a little girl walking through our gladiolus field -- and the judges liked that general direction. But the photo is small and of poor quality and needs to be enhanced in some way. The overall feel of the cover should convey a "long ago and far away" feeling. If possible, a picture of the dilapidated old farmhouse should be incorporated -- maybe by combining the house image from one photo and the girl in a field from another. The photo might be kept stark and sepia-toned, or be hand-painted as old photos were; or the cover could be an illustration based on the photos. In any case, the cover must not look new or modern; instead it must convey a long-ago, vintage, dream-like quality.
I need someone who is skilled in working with and enhancing photos. My raw material is in the form of small 3x5 black and white photos that I want to blow up and digitally manipulate. The images I am forwarding include a rough concept using the photo of a little girl in a field with my book title, author's name, and "A Memoir" in place -- but the typefaces need improving. The other images include my father -- a man in a field with a straw hat -- showing the small house in the distance. I have a picture of my two sisters in the field circa 1948. And finally I have a sheet of scanned pictures from my family's house while it was being built. I would be happy sticking with the raw concept I submitted with my book title in place, with graphic design improvement, enhanced photo quality, and better typefaces. But I am open to creative ideas.
