Re-Covered Books Contest: ‘Fight Club’

Re-Covered Books Contest: 'Fight Club'

1. You don’t ask questions.
2. You don’t ask questions.
3. No excuses.
4. No lies.
5. You have to trust Tyler.

These are the ground rules laid out by Tyler Durden in Chuck Palahniuk’s 1996 teeth shattering novel, Fight Club.

“It follows the experiences of an unnamed protagonist struggling with insomnia. Inspired by his doctor’s exasperated remark that insomnia is not suffering, the protagonist finds relief by impersonating a seriously ill person in several support groups. Then he meets a mysterious man named Tyler Durden and establishes an underground fighting club as radical psychotherapy.”

The covers for Fight Club have always been lackluster, fan-made or legit, so it’s your job to make something that really stands out from the crowd. Your cover should feel visceral, raw, and gritty. This is a book about anarchy, about finding your place in the world, and about kicking the snot out of another guy to better understand who you truly are. Try to be beautiful about your execution of the design, and please, don’t overuse blood.

RULES

• Save your images as JPGs at 700px wide, 72 DPI, RGB mode – this is super important! There are no height restrictions (within reason) and be sure to send images as separate JPGs. Feel free to play with the dimensions and have fun with what you make. Submitting a front and back cover will certainly help your chances, but is not required. You can enter up to 3 times.

The winner will receive a $100 gift card to Amazon, and perhaps some more fun goodies.

• Label your files “Firstname-Lastname-Fight-Club.jpg”

• Send all entries to [email protected] with the subject “Re-Covered Books: Fight Club”. Cut and paste what I wrote there, it’s super easy and it helps me keep track of your entry.

• All entries are due Saturday, December 14, 2013 by Midnight PST.

This is one of my favorite books and I really look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!
