This is a book cover for the book Courtship in Crisis - The Case for Traditional Dating.
The book is a follow up for a blog post that received over 1 million page views. So if your design wins, it could get in front of a lot of people.
Designers who read the blog post will have a MUCH HIGHER chance of winning the contest because they will have a better feel for the book. This is particularly true if you live outside of America and are not familiar with the Courtship Culture.
You can find the blog post that inspired the book at http://www.thomasumstattd.com/2014/…ly-flawed/ . Think of this as an expanded outline.
Please include the following elements on the cover:
Title: Courtship in Crisis
Subtitle: The Case for Traditional Dating.
Author: Thomas Umstattd Jr.
Optional Visual Elements:
Endorsement: "'This is a placeholder endorsement from an author, pastor or other public figure.' Johnny Appleseed"
I encourage you to look over both the Kickstarter campaign and blog post. This should give you a very good feel for what we are trying to accomplish with this cover.
Feel free to experiment and have fun. We are looking for something non cheesy and cliche.
