Possible book cover

What content must be included in the print design?

I envisage the cover as containing a number of Russian dolls laying on their sides, scattered about in the foreground, with the faces of Claude, Pat, Gloria, Cameron and a small mischievous gray alien (the latter as the smallest of the decreasingly-sized dolls).
- Claude’s face to be based on that of Jeremy Hunt, The UK Secretary of State for Health in the UK;
- Pat’s face to be based on the actress Raquel Welsh, when young;
- Gloria’s face to be based on the voluptuous red-headed lead female (Christina Rene Hendricks) from the TV series Mad Men;
- Cameron’s face to be based on that of Prime Minister David Cameron;
- The little grey alien’s face to be based on that of the alien in the film, Paul.
Centrally placed behind them would be an egg-shaped upright oval vehicle, sideward’s on, with its nearest door open revealing another (the largest) Russian doll, leaning forward with Thomas Beckon's worldly-wise smiling face painted on it. Thomas’s face would resemble a middle-aged man of regular features, a kindly smile and intelligent brown eyes and a holy disposition. This would be akin to the face of the actor Rex Harrison in Doctor Dolittle.
I would describe the craft as: resembling an upright, silver-coloured gleaming egg with two opposing straight side panels, containing doors that slide backwards, the nearest being open. The top two thirds of the visible “egg” appeared to be resting in a flange that spread out from its surface, giving the impression that the top part was sitting in a moulded egg cup that curved inwards at the lowest edge.
Noticeably, there are no wheels on the vehicle, nor any indication of the method of propulsion.
The central section would be enlarged by an old-fashioned magnifying glass with short handle placed over part of the craft and its occupant.
Predominant colours would be shades of yellow or blue (latter preferred) in background, with the craft silver grey and the dolls brightly painted as per traditional costumed Russian dolls.
On the back cover , if it gets printed, would be lots of flying craft of the same design as on the front cover, but much smaller on a typical highway, with synopsis and space for ISBN number.
Title THE INLOOKER and author name TERRY TUMBLER TO appear near top and bottom in italics.

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer Buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.

Thanks so much for your efforts and creativity.
