Deine Bibel (besser) verstehen - Orientierungshilfe und Antworten auf die häufigsten Fragen
Description of the book: A reference book that is suitable for people who are fresh in the faith as well as long-time Bible readers. Those who want to put their Bible study on a solid foundation. This includes a basic knowledge of how I "must" read the Bible so as not to fall for false teachings or fall into error. In addition, the most frequently asked questions about biblical topics are answered. The clear layout of the questions and the corresponding Bible passages allows for quick reference. Everything is brought to the point and is neither too short nor too long in terms of content.
Age of the target group: 25-60 Distribution of the target group (male/female): 50:50 Background: devout Christians Location: Mainly Germany, Austria, Switzerland (it would be optimal if the design is adapted to this market and doesn't look American). Values of the target group and design claim: serious, trustworthy, honest, inquisitive, informed, conservative, searching
Book cover type
Clear design, minimalist but still with an eyecatcher. A mixture of seriousness and arousing curiosity about the content of the book. Sample book covers that reflect the desired style are attached. It would be nice if the cover reflected that you are looking at a non-fiction book on biblical issues, not a generic Christian cover. That combined with a minimalist eye-catching design is challenging, but I welcome all suggestions. If possible, one should recognize at a glance (that would be the optimum) that biblical questions and a foundation for understanding the Bible can be found in the book. In combination with the design requirements; not quite easy.... :) The cover template from kdp with correct page number is also attached (book size 6.69 x 9.61 inches, 200 pages).
What to avoid
It shouldn't look playful or 'cheap'. It's about a serious topic and we want to create trust. The title shouldn't be too small, it should be readable even when it is displayed in small on the Amazon search results page. The design should not look like a $30 cover from Fiverr, but fresh and unique. The biblical cross does NOT necessarily have to appear.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
