A Highbrow History of Man’s Quest for Weed"
This novelty book is a collection of brief stories (one to three paragraphs) featuring famous and not-so-famous people throughout history whose ingenuity, intellect and creativity were inspired by the appreciation of WEED! Yes, marijuana. Through ninety-five vignettes (approx 200pp), we show how human passions under the influence of pot have given rise to new nations, scientific breakthroughs and amazing inventions that define our human journey. Each story has parts that are true and parts not true (invented), and each is accompanied by a black and white illustration relevant to the story beside it. The book will be marketed as Humor and intended for fairly well-educated, intellectually curious folks with a sense of humor.
COVER SIZE: square, roughly 8 x 8 inches
COVER ART: Can be either Black and White or CMYK
YOU DO NOT NEED TO ADDRESS THE BACK COVER in this contest. However, if your cover idea/design flows over onto back cover and you'd like to show it, please do.
The attached are three examples of left and right hand pages within the book to show the factual/fictional nature of the contents and how each illustration relates to the story beside it. The illustrations throughout the book were drawn by the same artist (hired through Freelancer.com!) so all are of similar style. DO NOT use these illustrations as a part of YOUR cover design; they serve only to convey the B/W line art style of artwork within. Your cover design may include illustration but it does not have to,. Your cover treatments should center on the IDEA expressed in the book subtitle: A Highbrow History of Mans Quest for Weed.
Somewhere in your front cover design, include two By-lines:
By Tom Thomas and BS Wedeman.
and a smaller by-line: Illustrations by Davey Crockett
