Book cover ideas...

Hello all,

I am working on my book cover ideas to give to the graphic designer who is working on the cover jacket, insides, etc. Here is an idea of what I am going for...




Half male half female walking away from a bathroom. It is just an idea, I was trying to blur out the detail to make it a bit more ambigious...

Ideas?

I could do a rear shot of the back of my head type of thing...

We will see, no rush really, I do see where showing a pic could be problematic.

I like your idea....but like MERTON said, I'd go artistic. The problem with the pic you have too, is that you can only actually see the sign for one bathroom door. Make sure the picture is such that both men's and women's bathroom door signs are visible. I think the person in the image should be wearing a dress, but have masucline features in their face.

You could do the old 'face in a mirror' trick. Photo shot from behind, foreground is the back of the head, background the face in mirror.

The difference would/could be you take a photo in a guys bathroom and a portion of a urinal in view.


You could also have two photos, side-by-side, one as-above, the other the same 'face in a mirror', with a woman who could pass for a young guy, dressed masculine, with tampon dispensor in view...or...in the powder room/lounge section of a fancy-schmancy women's bathroom (some older department stores still have those powder room/lounges in women's bathrooms).
