SUBTITLE SUGGESTION:ELITE ATHLETES REVEAL THEIR SECRETS FOR LIFE Please disregard the note about dropping the snapshot of the older athlete. We are still open to showing it. We simply do not have a good close-up/head-and-shoulders shot of an aging athlete we can use. IF YOU CAN COME UP WITH A BETTER IMAGE/IMAGES FOR THE AGING ATHLETE, PLEASE TRY. It's probably best to think generic. We tried to play with the idea of a stopwatch, but this says "urgency" or "the end" so we gave that up. Perhaps you have a cool idea. We could show an older person walking into a stadium or into a game that is being played. So many people run that we could try something like a close-up of foot prints or shoes being tied up by older hands. As in http://www.theathletesfoot-sa.com/images/720/0/top-about-right.jpg We have uploaded the complete previous cover (front, back, spine) so that, if your art is accepted, you can add your graphic background to the entire cover. Please work only on the front cover until you are individually given the word to work on the rest of the cover. PLEASE CONSIDER USING HOT COLORS -- RED with white letters might be worth trying. The colors have to pop on the book shelf and on the Net. We have 3 seconds to grab a book buyer. PLEASE SEE CHANGES IN CAPS AND IN ATTACHMENTS BELOW. We are currently in the process of changing the design and cover for a new book called: "The Aging Athlete:" In the book cover's current form it stands as a black and white image of a young athlete becoming and older man who is still fit. Book Summary: What can we learn from former top athletes that is especially relevant for our health and lifestyles? Even though most athletes are essentially performance minded rather than maintenance and wellness minded, it’s still a compelling revelation why 90 percent of them don’t continue a program to try and retain some of their skills and conditioning. Learning from the 10 percent who do stay fit and healthy is where we can all benefit.“The Aging Athlete” chronicles the fitness and mindset of a group of retired and semi-retired athletes, of what’s worked for them over the years since they stopped competing or serving in the armed forces.This is a book of engaging first-hand interviews with athletes whose intention was to never stop pursuing fitness. Some examples from the book include: -A surfer who changed course and became a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion; a top '60s and '70s American football player who now 'recreates' in the weight room - The 'World's most Dangerous Man' who formed a ministry but still likes to participate in cage fighting -The USC fullback who helped usher in acceptance of black collegiate athletes in the Deep South -The tall white Texan who was called upon to break the color barrier ... in reverse The idea is to design a cover that incorporates the ideas and philosophies, the endurance, and the life lessons that come from young to old through physical fitness.

JUST UPLOADED TEMPLATE FROM LIGHTNING SOURCE -- A PUBLISHING COMPANY. See file called JacketGray. We uploaded the full cover to 99Designs. Please open that and work with that file. We are going to publish this in hardback with a paper cover with flaps. For that reason we need extra material -- enough length and width to make it work with flaps (front and back flaps) on a 6x9 hardback. 1) You should put IN all of the elements in place in that template. 2) In one file, All fonts should be outlined (but in which case we won't be able to do ANY text corrections if needed)and2a) In a second file, this template should be "packaged" and sent with all fonts. 3) Two PDFs high resolution, one of each file, is done and sent along AS WELL. 4)It is important that all instructions in the template are followed. The proportions in the cover need to be adjusted. The cover needs to be done at 6 x 9 inches. There needs to be bleed. Text should not be too close to the edge of the cover (should be at least .25") and of course the spine will need to be added. The cover is done in InDesign CS6 so the artist, need to be equipped for it or something we can open with InDesign CS6. We need the file with all fonts rasterized. We welcome your artistic talent to make this cover better. The snapshot of the older athlete doesn't quite fit in its original form. Without that photo we see a book with a young football player on it which doesn't suggest the story of the aging athlete. If we have to go with that, so be it. If you can come up with a better version, please do so. We originally liked the sepia tone of the young football player in 1958. Please try to make his jersey come alive. The number on the jersey was superimposed because originally the player faced to the left. We changed his direction to lead the reader into the book and therefore had to change the numbers. One suggestion was to try making the jersey shimmer or glow with an artistic technique that many graphics people do with black and white photos to enhance some parts of the bxw photos but not all of them. This is a cool technique. See what you can come up with. HD images are preferred. There are is no particular style of art-style we are looking for at this time - the more you can incorporate the book's theme and creative ideal, and visually interpret the concept, the higher chance of winning you have. We will work with you. Please be patient with us as we are working full-time jobs. Please only send your own artwork, do not swipe things from the Net. Please use the InDesign file we have attached. Good Luck! IF YOU CAN COME UP WITH A BETTER IMAGE/IMAGES FOR THE AGING ATHLETE, PLEASE TRY. It's probably best to think generic. We tried to play with the idea of a stopwatch, but this says "urgency" or "the end" so we gave that up. Perhaps you have a cool idea.
