grad skool rulz book cover image

All the grad skool rulz are being edited and collected into one text and supplemented with advice for tenure track faculty members. I’m trying to cover the basics of your time from grad skool applications to getting tenure. I’ll make the document available for $2 on Smashwords, the self-publishing website. That way, it can be downloaded into any text reading device – PC’s, Kindles, Nooks, and smartphones. It will be much more affordable and available than traditional print. Of course, the original columns will be available for free on orgtheory.

Now, my question for the orgheads – what kind of cover image would you want to see on the document? It has to be public access. I could also just go with a simple block of color. Any ideas?

  1. Do something interesting (I’m a bit of a book cover snob – layout also matters, a lot). You might even open it up to proposals from student designers (e.g., if Indiana has a design-related school, this could be good for a student’s portfolio, and definitely not a ton of work) and then choose one you like. By the way, your Black Power cover was nice. So another option is just to use an open source image (w/ permission – photographers usually are delighted if their photo gets used) and overlay title etc onto that.

    For what it’s worth, you can always peruse through the book cover archive for ideas,

    Or, more covers here –

  2. I’m not so artistic, but I just ran this by a friend, who suggested ramen noodles.

  3. How about a comic from PhD Comics?
