We are looking for a creative and innovative cover design for an upcoming book published by The War Writers' Campaign, Inc. This is a veterans nonprofit organization telling the stories of US Military Veterans.
What we're looking for:
The basic concept is a collage of two images blended over each other: one of a city/skyline of Kirkuk where the novel takes place or at least an Iraqi city (minarets and such) blended with a second image of a pride of lions, or perhaps a single lion's head (a rough example is attached, but please be creative in designing something fresh).
6x9 wrap around cover design (full dimensions attached as a pdf below)
Front cover with author (Michael Dawdy) and title (The Prides of Lions)
Back cover with blurb (attached), author photo (attached), and WWC logo (a few options attached)
Spine with title, author, and wwc logo
Here's a little about the book:
What does redemption really look and feel like…how does a soldier make a difference…and what does it mean to resist invasion and what will it cost?
These are a few of the questions men and women of Kirkuk, Iraq—both Americans in uniform and the community they try to control—face every day while Iraq begins to go up in flames and descend into chaos in the years just after the US invasion.
Every soldier has a story; so does every insurgent.
The Prides of Lions is an intimate look into the fears, joys, challenges, and accomplishments of fighters on both sides of the line. What bonds do soldiers make? And how different are those bonds from the ones rebels make with each other? Is war felt in the same way no matter what side you take?
Lions form prides to survive. They hunt, eat, sleep, and exist within a social hierarchy that rewards ferocity and strength. Only here, in the context of man and war, does the hunt and feast carry a moral weight too heavy for some to fathom.
“Really wonderful working with this professional for our book cover design. Professional and timely communication! A great design and very creative! Thanks for all your time and energy!”
