Book Title: Losing Dad, Finding Father
Subtitle: Discovering the Most Profound Relationship in the Universe
Author: David L. Ellis
Need to include somewhere: A True Story
Update 5/9/16: Removing this requirement- Need to include: Book One of the Finding Father Series
This book is a true story. I want to incorporate a feeling of cold to warm, isolation to inclusion, by using colors to indicate transformation. But also want to imply a sense of struggle and that things continue to be in a state of growth and change. I want to have the cover retain a clean look. I am open to all ideas of how to portray this, but my company logo incorporates the aspen leaf, so open to using that, though not necessary.
I do not want any literal interpretations of this title. Pictures of father and child, or a man looking for his father are going the wrong direction. I want to capture the emotion of loss, but more importantly, the emotion of re-discovery of hope, without falling into the typical religious-looking book cover. I like bold colors to convey emotion, in either the background or font. I am ok with using pictures of a man, but only in an artist or stylistic manner (so out of focus, partial face, silhouettes, or shot from behind might work).
