We just uploaded five new files, which we would like designers to consider in their designs. Please feel free, however, to suggest novel ideas and go in different directions, but also consider integrating these elements if possible.
There are 4 images, titled “ancient maps” #1 - #4. These are the look and feel of the cover that we would like to propose: an old medieval map of the interior soul of humanity. An additional aspect on the map would also include the idea of “persona”, or the masks that we wear. Ideally this mask would look very ancient as well.
Also, please have the main title as: Map of the Soul – Persona
and the smaller subtitle as: The Masks We Wear
In addition we have uploaded a PDF file that has a more modern diagram of a map. We have labeled this one with psychological items including ego, shadow, persona, etc. These are the elements we write about in the book and might be helpful to integrate into the ancient map as well.
This project is inspired by the band BTS who has used the concept and earlier book title from our author, Dr. Murray Stein, on their latest album to be released on April 12. The author’s initial book is “Jung’s Map of the Soul” and Dr. Stein’s new book series will continue along this line. BTS’s new album is also called Map of the Soul – Persona, which was inspired from our author’s initial book of the same title.
Some background links if needed include:
We plan to use the first design as a template for 3 similar books. They will all be held together with the idea of “The Map of the Soul”, and then integrate other areas into these maps. (other areas to include growth and individuation, mid-life and the Christian Bible).
Thus, at the conclusion of this work to create the book cover for “Map of the Soul – Persona: The Masks we wear”, we would like to potentially work with the cover designer to make 4 slight variations of the cover to continue for a series. The next 3 book covers would be virtually the same with a slight variation in the image.
