A well-designed book cover, for a standard 6"x9" book.
I'm looking for a "stylish" design that looks like a business-oriented book, not a work of fiction. Attached are three covers of three other business books which I like for both content and cover: The Lean Startup, Purple Cow, and Business Model Generation.
The "Idea to Startup" image is a high-level flow chart of the process outlined in the book. I include it to help explain the contents of the book, and to provide some potential, but not required, inspiration for the design. Note that the format of the diagram is from Microsoft Word, so if you use any part of this diagram, please DO NOT incorporate the style.
I've also attached my profile head-shot and the same shot in two other sizes. Please incorporate the picture on the back as you see best. My use of this can be seen on http://about.me/luni.
