I write books on cycle touring for people who enjoy reading about cycling journeys.
What's your vision?
I would like both print and ebook cover design for an 85,000 word book about a cycle tour through France. The paperback size will be 5.25" x 8".
The book's title, subtitle and sales description are below: Title: A Slow Tour Through France Subtitle: From Avignon To Saint-Malo By Bicycle (Mostly) Author: Marie Madigan Sales Description: When Marie and her partner set off to spend two months cycling around France with a tent, they aren’t trying to break any records. They just want a bit of sunshine for a change. The weather has other ideas. During nearly 2,000 slow miles they struggle with hailstones, hills, bad knees, and the scarcity of tea pots - only to find, as if they didn't know it already, that no matter what the weather and the road throw at you, life is still better on the back of a bike. I may modify the sales description slightly before the end of the contest. I've added Amazon links below to some book covers I like in the same genre: 1. http://www.amazon.co.uk/One-Man-Bike-Mike-Carter/dp/0091940567/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456869306&sr=8-1&keywords=one+man+and+his+bike 2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Eat-Sleep-Cycle-Around-Britain/dp/1849536872/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456869175&sr=8-1&keywords=eat+sleep+cycle+a+bike+ride+around+the+coast+of+britain 3. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gironimo-Riding-Very-Terrible-Italy-ebook/dp/B00HDHRRTK/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1456869400&sr=1-1&keywords=gironimo 4. http://www.amazon.co.uk/French-Revolutions-Cycling-Tour-France-ebook/dp/B004J4VZC0/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1456869400&sr=1-2&keywords=gironimo 5. http://www.amazon.co.uk/My-Own-Two-Wheels-Saddle-ebook/dp/B008BI1OLW/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1456869546&sr=1-1&keywords=on+my+own+two+wheels

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
mariemadigan collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
