Not So Noble Prize

To celebrate the proud launch of the ebook Marketing is Violence: A User Guide by Marianna Cage, Not so Noble Books is holding a cover design competition for artists and illustrators. The winner of this prestigious accolade will not only see their work appear as the front cover of the book where it will be seen by thousands, they will also win 10% royalties of the book's sales for a year.

The free competition is open for entries throughout January. Submissions will be posted, accredited, on their website and Facebook page and will be judged by a panel of renowned artists and writers.

Marketing is Violence is an exposé of the soft-core violence of advertising and the way it is understood in so-called business science. Through meticulous research Marianna Cage uncovers how its principal role is a weapon in the war of businesses against the consumer. She also discusses it in terms of aesthetic disturbance and visual pollution. We hope the winning cover image will either embody these themes or supersede them. We want a killer!
