What's your vision?
Book cover. Circa 1939, yet perhaps incorporating a 20s style. Option 1: Fanned playing cards, from left to right: Queen, early twenties, reasonably attractive, grieving, brown hair, profile facing Jack. Jack, the Unlucky One, light brown/dirty blonde hair, also mid-twenties, facing viewer with a worried, defeated, unlucky expression, holding a doctor's black bag. King: profile facing left, mid-twenties, redhead, wearing a greatcoat and holding a revolver. Between Jack and the King is the Joker, perhaps a little raised, of a discreetly naked girl with blue/black hair and white skin, looking at Jack or viewer with a "head-over-heels in love" expression, Back cover: the Ace: Inspector, mid-sixties, seamed face, wearing a worn broad-brimmed hat, a sandy mustache sprinkled with white and attempting with marginal success towards handlebars -- leaving room for text as described below, ISBN barcode and publisher. Incorporating a background image spanning front and back covers of the profile of a 1934 Packard would be a nice touch.... Option 2: Wooden bridge in falling-apart condition in the moonlight, the discreetly naked blue/black haired, white-skinned young girl on the right and standing on the gravel road just past the bridge and facing Jack. She is crying and possibly reaching for Jack, but fear prevents her from going onto the bridge. Jack is on the bridge and moving quickly (at a run?) towards her, holding a handsaw and wearing a button down shirt, trousers, dress shoes. Junipers, aspens, mountains in the distance. The mood is haunting. Back cover would be the middle of the bridge, one rail splintered to suggest that a vehicle has gone over the side. Although just a portion of the bridge will be shown, the bridge is about fifty feet high and spans a gorge the same depth. If you have an idea divergent from those listed, yet encapsulates the general concept of one Very Unlucky Guy, and makes us lunge for the book, then I'm interested.
I would like to see a new and improved Archer to accompany A Bowstring Publication on the Cover, and the same Archer to appear at the top of the spine. The text on the attached pdf back cover should appear on the back cover, as well as publisher, city/state as shown in the attached file. Fonts shown may be changed at the illustrator's discretion. Cover trim size is 12.772 inches wide and 9.25 inches high. Text and images must be at least .125 inches inside the trim lines to ensure that no live elements are cut during the bookmaking process. Images may be CMYK or RGB color, sized at 100%, with a minimum resolution of 600 dpi. Title and author's name should appear on the spine, as well as the cover. There must be a non-integral portion of the back cover illustration, lower right-hand corner, 2 inch by 1.2 inch, to allow for the ISBN barcode.
