DESIGNS NOW ONLY ACCEPTED FROM FINALISTS - I am a publisher (self funded) looking to re-release one of the greatest stories ever told in engineering (believe me, it is a great story!). We are looking to creatively re-launch this book in a contemporary and appealing manner to maximise exposure and sales, the book cover will play a CRITICAL role.
The desired audience is primarily 25 + males, however, the cover shoudl be able to capture the female market via relating to promoting what this machine has done for the average jet traveller.
The book will be called 'JET' with 'The Frank Whittle Story' written somewhere smaller on the front page. We need the authors name sopmewhere 'John Golley' and we will have the usual blurb on the spine and back page (it is the front page which is critical for the contest!). I am keen to have a jet engine and something sky related on the cover, otherwise i am leaving this to you - the expert! As an example of a cover done for a similar book - please see http://www.iconbooks.co.uk/book.cfm…4046-538-7
I personally like the clean steel of a new engine or casing, with some wing showing -, and this can be based on photographs or animation.
The book is currently called 'Genesis of the Jet' and if you google this you will see how it is currently designed.
