I am looking for a book cover design for a historic novel, taking place in the early 11th century.
What's your vision?
I wrote a historic novel and am now in search of a suitable cover design. I was thinking of the kind of cover I attached below such as the one from "Pillars of the Earth", showing a landscape. But I am also open to other suggestions, maybe something more "classic" like the below Game of Thrones book cover. I also attached some other designs to give some ideas, but I'm not the designer, you are :) Depending on the type of design you create, I would appreciate to have a cover which goes all around the book, i.e. from front page over spine to back page. In the end, the title and the author name, the blurb on the back page as well as a barcode will need to be added to the cover. This can be added later however. The size of the cover will be as follows: Spine width: 2.96-2.99 cm Total width incl. trimming edge: 30.96-30.99 cm Height incl. trimming edge: 22.50 cm The trimming edge is 0.5 cm all around the cover. No need to mark this! There is also no need to mark the Spine, it will be right in the center of the total width. I also attached the rest of the sizes fyi, hope you don't mind it's in German.
The title of the book will be "Das Land der Flüsse", meaning "The Land of Rivers", as it mainly takes place in a part of Switzerland where many rivers flow together and into the Rhine. I think it would be really nice to have kind of a landscape on it, nevertheless I am very open to other designs.
