What's your vision?
Author: Jim Egan Title: The High School Graduate's Owners Manual Subtitle: A User Guide To Help You Get Your Adult Life Off To A Successful Start Size: 6 x 9 Use the book description to get a good feel for your design. Book description: Congratulations! If you are reading this book, it’s very likely that someone that loves or cares for you very much gave it to you. It’s also very likely that you recently graduated from high school and are about to embark on the greatest journey of all time—life. Your basic education is complete. For the last 12 years, that’s what you did, with adults there every step of the way telling you what to do. That’s about to change. Sure, there will still be adults all around you giving you direction, but what’s different now is it’s up to you whom you listen to and what guidance you will follow. In order to help you navigate this journey into the unknown, this owner’s manual has been created for you. You own your future; hopefully, this owner’s manual helps you make the most of it!

Alex captured my genre very well with the cover of "How to Get Government Contracts". I showed a lot of people the cover and they were floored with the goodness. I believe this book cover will "steal" buyers. Thanks Alex.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
