We want a cover for a book about Hercules. It should reflect the high quality writing of the author (Dr. Phillip Matyszak). A statue of Hercules and Greek vases come to mind but we are open for creative minds, it should obviously have a ancient Greek theme.
At the front cover we want the name of the author (Philip Matyszak)
the title: Hercules - the first superhero - an unauthorized biography.
At the back cover a link to the website matyszakbooks.com and the text:
Hercules - the superman, the monster-slaying machine, the myth – who was the man beneath the lion-skin head-dress, and does he really live up to his legend? This unique biography tells the story of the first superhero from his traumatic birth to his dramatic death.
Hercules was more than just his twelve famous labours. He was a father, a lover, a leader of armies and a fine strategist. He was also a cattle-thief, a murderer and a rapist. Using ancient sources from early Greece to the Late Roman Empire, this detailed biography fleshes out the character of one of the most complex and flawed heroes of Greek mythology.
Philip Matyszak is well known for his fascinating and approachable guides to ancient Athens and Rome. He is also the best-selling author of The Greek and Roman Myths. Here he tells the complete story of Hercules with huge enthusiasm, lively wit and solid scholarship.
