Mnemko got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Cover for my book, "What's the Big Idea? 30 Reinventions for a Better America"
Check out Mnemko's Book cover contest…
Community & Non-Profit
The target audience are people who are interested in public affairs, a better America, and a better world.
What's your vision?
I need the cover for my book "What's the Big Idea: 40 Reinventions for a Better America." The book consists of ideas for reinventing education, the way we select our leaders, our criminal justice system, housing, taxation, health care, indeed, many of society's most important components. The file must consist of the front cover, spine, and back cover. The book will be 6 inches wide x 9 inches tall and will be published by CreateSpace. Here are CreateSpace's specifications for the cover: https://www.createspace.com/Special/Enterprise/Publisher/submission_guidelines.jsp. I'll also need a separate file that just contains the front cover. For the front cover, I kind of like the image on page 2 of the attached file--it implies that society's pillars are getting reinvented, but that may be too difficult for people to understand. I am very open to your ideas.
The front cover text: What's the Big Idea? tk Reinventions for a Better America by Marty Nemko, Ph.D. Former columnist, TheAtlantic.com, San Francisco Chronicle,& Contributing Editor, U.S. News The spine should say What's the Big Idea? at the top of the book's spine, Marty Nemko at the bottom. The back cover should say: BREAKTHROUGH IDEAS for creating jobs, reinventing health care, education, even a dramatic alternative to capitalism or socialism. Drawing from the full range of the political spectrum, this is more than just a thought-provoking read, What's the Big Idea? is a blueprint for a better America at a time when many people the American empire is in its decline and fall. At the bottom of the page, it should say Marty Nemko holds a Ph.D. specializing in the evaluation of innovation from the University of California, Berkeley and subsequently taught in Berkeley's Graduate School. His over 1,000 columns and other writings have appeared in publications from the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times. He is in his 24th year as host of Work with Marty Nemko on KALW-FM, A National Public Radio station in San Francisco. His best articles are archived on www.martynemko.com
