The assignment:
    Create a new book jacket design for your novel. The design should include the following:
          o New and original cover art created by hand by you. The cover art must give an idea of what the
             book is about and the theme(s) it covers (no clip art!). Of course it must also include the book
             title, the author’s name and a tagline written by you. The cover art/design should continue onto
             the spine and back of the book jacket.
          o Back cover that is a brief summary of the book, written by you in your own words, and would
             make a potential reader browsing in the book store want to buy the book. The summary
             shouldn’t give away the ending but rather tease the reader into wanting to read more.



You may  not    use clip art on this assignment. All work must be created by your own hands. Please see me
if you have questions or concerns.
