Front and back cover for two small books of poetry (thus I will choose two designs from the finalists).
TRIM SIZE: A4 portrait (148 mm by 210mm)
SPINE: 2.33 mm — no text is to go on the spine
BLEED: 4 mm all round
DELIVERABLES: An Adobe Illustrator file (.AI) and a EPS file that can be opened in version 15 of Adobe Illustrator.
AUTHOR (of both books): Paul D, Pacey
TITLE 1:Teenage Queen–Whilst In Love
TITLE 2: For Ordinary People Like You
THEMES: Both books are young adolescent poetry. The poetry ranges across many topics, so there is no one unifying theme in any f the books. The author has suggested that Teenage Queen–Whilst In Love would benefit from having a photo or image of an attractive female teenager somewhere on the cover. And for the other book, perhaps some old chap in a wig playing the guitar or lute. (I've attached his ideas as PDF scans, but you are free to come up with your own ideas.
I will also upload two template files (in EPS formats). These have trim marks and bleed areas in place. You can reposition the barcode on the back as you please. Please use the template whose barcode ends 27 for Teenage Queen–Whilst In Love (and the other template for For Ordinary People Like You.
The Burdock logo and web address should also go somewhere on the back cover.
On the back cover, please place this text:
"More wide-ranging poems from the pen of prolific poet and songwriter Paul D. Pacey."
