Book cover design for the biography:
Donald A. McGavran
A Biography of the Twentieth Century’s Premier Missiologist
By Dr. Gary L. McIntosh
Foreword by Nelson Searcy
Have a main image of the subject Donald McGavran (see attachment "1980s McGavran portrait color.jpg"). It is an older color photo – no need for color correction or image clean-up at this time – that will be done later.
Want this image to be the focus with a strong type face for the Main Title. See cover samples below.
Need to see some color and font variations on the typeface that complement the image. Explore both serif and sans serif fonts.

Walt Disney cover:
Book size is 6” w x 9” h with an approx. .995” spine.
