We need a book cover for a nonfiction book called ALL MEN ARE PIGSS, about relationships and sex, a self-help guide to finding and maintaining better relationships. The reader for this book is likely male (80%), and the age group varies, from 25-60. The book has a difference twist, it points out that men are different than women, men are visual and want sex, and women are more emotional and usually want things other than sex. As a result of the author’s interviewing hundreds of men and women for the book, he discovered a list of traits that a small subgroup of women have-that subgroup actual wants, no, needs sex, much like men. That list of traits is called the Holy Grail, as most men are searching for such women, and this list is the guide to that goal. The book is edgy and at times coarse but not pornographic, but again, men are the intended to be the reader most of the time. Also inside the book, there are a set of tokens that print on heavier paper, to “punch” out and carry in a pocket. These were designed in a previous design contest, https://99designs.com/buttons-icons
Feel free to use whatever fonts and graphic elements you like. The text blocks for rear cover can be arranged and put in any order you want. Leave a Half inch white area at lower rear of cover; this is where the publisher’s info, bar code, etc goes. This is the 7th book from this author.
Read the brief, where text blocks are furnished for the front and rear covers of the book.
Sex sells, and the goal for the cover is to sell the book. Speaking simplistically, a potential buyer
1. Sees a rack of books, and one catches his eye
2. He picks it up to look at the FRONT COVER.
3. If the front cover interests him, he TURNS IT OVER.
4. He is now looking for more information on what the book is about, why he should buy it, and what he should expect to learn or get from reading the book.
5. THINK ABOUT THESE STEPS AS YOU DESIGN THE COVER
