It's a book of magic, of fairy tales, poetry and possibility. I would like something magical, yet elegant. I want to use some of the annotations inside the book so I would like a layered file with the illustrations on a transparent layer. I want the book cover to have elements that are in the stories and poems - these are listed below. I would also like a green background, grass green or teal, with the illustrations all the same colour, white or gold. White or gold on green. Because this is going to be a print on demand book, the thumbnail needs to stand out. I will be encouraging people to buy the hardback version, this could be a fly leaf dust jacket style cover. I may need some flexibility as I am still working on the manuscript and do not know the exact dimensions as yet.
There could be a tree growing on the spine of the book which reaches its branches outwards to create the wreath area where the main title is placed.
Here are the elements I'm especially looking for:
Unicorn and/or pegasus
Stars sun and moon
Tree of life/seed of life
leaves, branches and tree
I have from my daughter that you can use directly in your design or you can use these as inspiration for your own elements:
spaceship with alien
needle and thread
I now have a publishers logo in low resolution but if you want higher resolution files I would prefer to email them to you then upload them here.
