What's your vision?
We need a realistic cover illustration for "Daring Heists: True tales of Robberies and Robbers", the third book in our new series, "Mystery & Mayhem". These narrative nonfiction children's books target readers ages 9-12. The series explores the bizarrely true stories that populate history. Each book tackles five different stories that whet kids' taste for history by engaging them in a genre with a proven track record—mystery! Book summary: If you visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts, you might be surprised to see frames without any paintings in them. This isn’t a mistake—museum officials hope to someday return the artwork that was stolen from the museum to these frames. In the early morning hours after St. Patrick’s Day in 1990, a guard at the Isabella Stewart Art Museum was tricked into allowing a pair of thieves disguised as police officers to enter the building. The thieves used duct tape to secure the two guards on duty in the basement while they stole 13 pieces of art. The art, and the thieves, have never been recovered. The famous tale of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum art heist, the first story in a collection of five true tales about robberies and robbers, introduces readers to the mystery and suspense of interesting crimes. Other topics discussed in the book include the stories of famous robbers D.B. Cooper and Marm Mandelbaum, the Great Train Robbery of 1963, and the Christmas Eve art theft at the Mexico City Museum in 1985. Illustrations specs: - 5.75 inches wide and 9 inches tall, full bleed - 4-color - realistic illustrated style that coincides with our existing cover art AVOID the following subject matter: - graphic, bloody, violent or overly scary scenes - dead bodies - children
The illustration will need to allow for following overlaying elements: 1. "Mystery & Mayhem" series banner 2. Book title "DARING HEISTS" 3. "True Stories" stamp 4. Book subtitle 5. Author name "Tom McCarthy" Examples of our existing Mystery & Mayhem covers are provided to show how these elements interact/overlay the illustration.
