Eye-catching but stylish book cover required for a book titled "51 things you should know about geophysics". The book is edited by Matt Hall and Evan Bianco.
This is the first book in a series of books about geoscience. In this book, there are 51 short chapters written by experts. It is not a stuffy book ... many of the experts are young "stars".
We are looking for a strong, clean, uncluttered, intelligent design that can be adapted for future books in the series. I have uploaded some covers from other publishers that appeal to our design aesthetic for reference only. I will be paying very close attention to the type as well as the image so please take care choosing the fonts, font sizes, line spacing, etc.
I prefer the idea of illustration on the cover, rather than photography. Illustration ideas could include seismic data (see seismicatlas.org for ideas), waves (any kind of waves), anything to do with geology or the earth.
Back cover copy will include a short blurb about the book and a couple of endorsemens.
The format is 5.5 x 8.5, paperback.
I will attach the corporate logo for the spine.
