Dr. William Sears, one of America’s most renowned pediatricians, is the author of over 40 books on parenting, medical, and nutrition topics. He specializes in the areas of parenting, family health, and healthy aging and has dedicated his life to helping people implement sustainable changes to create a lifetime of health. The Inflammation Solution is the latest addition to his educational library of books.
What's your vision?
We would like a book covered designed for Dr. Sears book that discusses how to heal the body and reduce inflammation. The name of the book is: "The Inflammation Solution" Subtitle: When Everything Works and Nothing Hurts Also on the front cover, we'd like to include the following points: - Heal hurts - Mellow moods - Control weight - Ease “itis” We'd like the cover to appear professional, and easy to read. William Sears, MD writes in a very down-to earth, easy to understand style and wants the book cover to reflect that. The finished cover should feel bright and approachable. DO NOT use black or dark colors for backgrounds or images on the cover. The term "inflammation" means that the body is "on-fire" so we would like to see the concept of fire alluded to in the cover. The fire does NOT have to be in an actual human body. You can creatively use a flame text for the word Inflammation, or the word inflammation cut out over a picture of flames in the background. You can also use textured red/orange backgrounds that are not images of flames but have that same look and appeal. Keep in mind that the flames should be used tastefully to maintain the educational look and feel of the book. The target audience for this book is people ages 40-65. The finished look should be modern/contemporary and look good enough to sit on a shelf at the bookstore and inspire people add it to a home collection. Mandatory Author info for front cover: "By William Sears, MD" Best-selling author of over 40 books Back Cover: The back cover should include a picture of the author (see attached options) and this information: "William Sears, M.D., is one of America’s most trusted physicians.
