Like any book cover, I would like it to be attention-getting while conveying the book's dichotomous nature: this is definitely Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas meets business.
While there is "doom and gloom", it ends with a few bright areas for the future. I would prefer an illustrated cover to anything with a photograph.
I’d imagine the cover to be quite a bit different from other “disruption in banking books” like those from Brett King, Ron Shevlin, Chris Skinner or Bye Bye Banks.
The title says "bankruption" but there is no need to play off of the word "bankrupt" or "disruption". I don't want anything "future-ish" like robots or connected devices. I really prefer a cover that isn't literal at all, but instead inspired by the confusion, frustration and fear that most of the readers have of the industry today.
6"w x9"h color book cover with 1/4" bleed.
