There is an existing 100 year old book cover that we need "cleaned up" and modified to reflect the new book, title, contributors, etc. We probably need more of a "Photoshop Ninja" than an original artist, but some art skills will also of course be helpful.
See attached scan of book cover to be modified. (We have much higher resolution scans that we can provide.)
Primary requirement for the modified cover will be:
1. clean up and enhance the existing art (it's a bit faded) and
2. using the same 1880s font that was used in the original cover, change the title, etc to reflect the new title and add additional information.
It would be most helpful if a designer entering this contest could provide a quick sample of their capabilities. For example an enhancement of any portion of the art and changing any part of the title (in the same font) to anything else. If we see that someone can effectively clean-up and "make new" the drawing and manipulate the title etc so that we can change the cover to reflect the new contents, then that is the person that we will want to retain.
Thanks and Happy Holidays.
