An illustration for the cover my book "Science et huiles essentielles" (Science and essential oils).
I'm published by l'Harmattan, so the inclusion of the title, name and so on is risky. I prefer pure illustration with the place for the title and name. In the end, you have the cover of my first book. So you see my affinities and the style of my editor.
Main concept :
My book explains that the essential oil therapeutic qualities are potent and could be very useful for public health. Physicians would be astonished and exalted if they saw their potential.
First, the cover must show the potency of essential oils, which are some kind of plant concentrated. Second, the cover should show the astonishment of the scientifics.
I would like the cover to be globally minimalist. Il like very much the cover of "The Chemistry of Aromatherapeutic Oils" by E. Joy Bowles.
The following paragraph is only an example of how this idea could be concretized.
Aromatic plants bursting from a bottle of essential oil on a white suggested table.
In a second time, on the side of the picture, an astonished scientific is watching the phenomenon. He is partly hidden under the table, we only see his face and his hands grabing the table.
