Check out anoopkumar1's Book cover contest…
Medical & Pharmaceutical
This book will communicate a way to transform the current healthcare system by redefining the human body as an energetic structure
What's your vision?
I would like a book cover that will be used for a Kindle e-book and a paperback book. The title is "The Story of Health". I like the Ringbearer font or similar font for the title - something that looks like it has stood the test of time, worn, powerful, but also an element of fantasy or storytelling. The subtitle is "How redefining the human body can transform your health and reinvent healthcare". Pick whichever font you think looks good for the subtitle. The central image I'd like to use is based on Da Vinci's Vitruvian man. But instead of the standard image I want it modified to show that the body is made of energy - however you want to creatively show that. The author's name (my name) should also be there, preferably across the bottom of the cover: "Anoop Kumar, MD". The background color and all colors in general I will leave to you. I want to create the mood of something like a powerful secret that is inside the book, something that has stood the test of time, something captivating, but also not aggressive or gaudy. Here is the text for the back cover: Why is it that we were able to send a man to the moon decades ago, but we still can't cure many chronic diseases? Why is it that heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune disease persist despite decades of research? Over the course of his medical training and practice as an emergency physician, Dr. Kumar has come to recognize that the answer to these questions is shockingly simple: In its quest to understand disease, medical science has ignored a developing science of wellbeing. In these pages, he demonstrates: o Why our understanding of human anatomy is incomplete o How a new understanding of the human body can bring wellbeing to your life o What our vision is for a true healthcare care system o How we can create a framework to understand and connect every healing system in the world o How to take radical action now If you want no-nonsense answers about what it takes to transform your health and reinvent healthcare, this book is for you.
There are some specifications for the cover that Amazon asks. I will paste them here: File Types Kindle Direct Publishing currently accepts two types of files for cover images: JPEG (JPEG / JPG) TIFF (TIF / TIFF) We apply additional compression to images when displaying them on the website. For best results, please upload your images with minimal compression. Dimensions Requirements for the size of your cover art must have an ideal height/width ratio of at least 8:5 (1.6), meaning: • A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side • For best quality, your image should be 2500 pixels on the longest side Important: We cannot accept any images larger than 10,000 pixels on the longest side. Size Your cover image must be less than 50MB. If the file type you are using supports compression, make sure to enable as little compression as possible, e.g. none for TIFF. Be sure to save your file with 72 dots per inch (DPI). Color Product images display on the Amazon website using the RGB (red, green, blue) color mode or profile. RGB is the color mode native to the web and many color screen displays, as these three colors displayed at varying levels of intensity create over 16 million colors. When saving and uploading your cover image file, save your file ONLY as RGB - not CMYK or sRGB- for the color profile. You can usually find this option in the File saving dialog of image manipulation programs such as Photoshop. Some programs may also refer to RGB color as 'True Color' in some programs. If in doubt, try opening a JPG inside Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari. If a JPG opens fine inside a web browser, it's most likely okay to use as a cover image. Make sure to save your image without color separation. This is usually a pre-press or color palette option. Use your image manipulation program or image analysis tool (some are available free online) to verify that your image file doesn't have color separation. Use color images whenever possible and relevant. Borders for White Cover Art Cover art with white or very light backgrounds can seem to disappear against the white background. Adding a very narrow (3-4 pixel) border in medium gray will define the boundaries of the cover.
