We need an ebook cover for an ebook featuring the best homemade tools on HomemadeTools.net. The ebook will be used as a free offer to encourage people to sign up for our newsletter.
It should look like a physical, real-world book. The fullsize image should be 8.5"x11". The deliverable should be an unflattened PSD file.
Here's an example of a previous ebook cover contest we ran, with a great result: http://www.hotrodders.com/scratch-built/Cover . Note the thumbnail image of the book cover, in the upper left-hand corner. We will also need this ebook cover to look good at the small thumbnail size.
The title of the ebook should be on two lines, like this:
50 Best Homemade Tools
The "HomemadeTools.net's" part of the title should somewhat match our existing website header text. The font/size/layout for the "50 Best Homemade Tools" are the artistic choice of the designer, but should be consistent with the look of HomemadeTools.net.
Our best idea is to include 4-6 tool "cards" scattered on the cover of the book. For an example of a tool card, see any category page on HomemadeTools.net, like this one: http://www.homemadetools.net/automotive . You could also include a deck or box of tool cards. Of course, we're open to other creative ideas for cover art.
Out of the 50 homemade tools that we have featured in the ebook, these are the most interesting images to include:
