Project description

Book is about George W. Bush and what the author of this book sees are his three crimes - Criminal negligence (for not seriously taking the many warning we would be attacked before 9/11), War Crimes (for taking the American into the unnecessary 2003 Iraq war by lying and misleading the American people about the dangers of Saddam Hussein), and Torture (for torturing people in his control, stemming from captured people thought to be responsible for 9/11 or fighters in the Iraq war).

Book cover should could envelop one or all of  the theme which is George W. Bush's three crimes.

Book Title: The Case Against George W. Bush

Readers will probably not be the general public, but mainly those who would read, say, the New York Times, the Economist or Foreign Affairs.

Most of the book is filled with more than 550 quotes from over 100 books, publications and government resources on the issues of oil, 9/11, the Iraq war, Saddam Hussein and torture. The book is to be a verifiable historical record of sourced quotes from the Bush admin, knowledgable politicians and officials, and the media on the events surrounding 9/11. You can see some of these quotes and more at 911plus.org

We use Word and PDF and don't really have the capability for Adobe. It will most likely by a 6x9 paperback book, but we don't know the spine size yet. Basically cover design only unless design covers whole book, but no specs yet.

  • all images are for free for commercial use. #41
  • Original concept, made from scratch and no clipart used. So everything is customizable in this design.
    Design is focused and portrayed on George W Bush and his three crimes.
    "Criminal negligence, War Crimes and Torture." - letterings are portrayed and aligned inside the fingerprint design.
    The design style closely follows the news article styles of the New York Times, the Economist and Foreign Affairs. I tried to keep it as simple as possible, less congested, yet meaningful.
    Two versions: #39 and #40

    Thank you.
  • This has an alternative back cover, the front is the same, again, everything is changeable. I used some text copied from the website, so I assume that will definitely need to be changed. #34
  • No photographs, so no worries about photographic rights, composed of 3D models, which can be posed and changed in any number of ways(don't be afraid to ask), hand-cuffs on a business suit, tortured people, and a plane heading for the towers. All Black and white underneath, with red, white, and blue over the top. Type is kept loose for easy changes, Lorem Ipsum on the back for placeholder. Open spots left for quotes, author's name, publisher, and UPC/ISBN....

    ....oh, and I've kept the spine purposely wide to allow for later adjustments. #24
  • Different title treatment. #23
  • Because of copyright infringement laws, I couldn't find a decent picture to use of Bush without special permission given and a hefty license fee.

    This image does wrap around the back and gives a nice space for text. #22

  • Hello,

    I have designed various covers that envelop the story surrounding George W. Bush. Some are literal, some metaphorical. If there is anything we can improve, please do say.

  • Is this for a front and back cover with spine, or just front and spine? If a back cover, what information will specifically need to go on that(synopsis, about the author, etc.)?
    • @weiesnbach Book is a draft but you can make up a spine size. Probably will have quotes from book on back cover.

    • @apriltheassistant So do you need a design for the back cover or not, and if so, how much space should be left for quotes etc.?

  • Hello, could you please indicate the measures that the book cover should have?
  • Hello! May i ask: What final files format should be?
