Dr. Raleigh lost his wife to cancer just 8 short months ago, and from his tragic lost has written a book to inspire others how to overcome and live life free from grief. This book is a personal journey and testimony of all that transpired along his path to overcoming grief. Raleigh was married for 41 years and served with his beloved wife in ministry for 27 years. The cover must reflect a legacy that both he and his late wife will be most proud of.
This book “Grief” deals with a sensitive matter and thus the cover must reflect sensitivity. Dark masculine colors might not be the best choice. The cover should radiate light, life, joy, peace, hope, excitement, a fresh start, etc. Dr. Raleigh must have His late wife Ruby on the back cover in full color without writing over her picture though in some ways making her the focal point, aside from the text and his own photo with bio.
Two separate thoughts for producing a cover design. First you could use the author’s photo as the front cover of the book, in an effort to convey what it looks like to come from the pit of despair to the fullness of joy. Second you could use your artistic creativity to convey the concept of moving from the pit of despair to the fullness of joy aside from using the author’s personal photo. I have included a possible concept for the front and back cover. Please use your artistic creativity even if you decide to use the idea I attached as a book cover.
