We have permission from our designer for another designer to carry on his series look. We are looking for that style to be replicated as closely as possibly so that there doesn't appear to be a break in our covers throughout the series.
We will require a paperback at some point, so would love to set up a project with the winning designer to complete that as well as other titles in the series.
The cover quote should be as on the previous designs:
'Michael Innes is in a class by himself' Time Literary Supplement
As well as the Series Title: An Inspector Appleby Mystery
The fonts are Brandon Grotesque for the title and Gotham for the rest.
Perhaps something like an empty frame on a gallery wall - or something more abstract. Feel free to surprise us - we love wildcards as long as their in keeping with the style.

"The mean street was poorly lit. He could just distinguish a torn blind drawn partly down over an accumulation of broken and dusty lumber. Above, an almost illegible board appeared to intimate that Mr Steptoe was a dealer in curios and antiques. Appleby went round the block without meeting more than a stray cat; and this time he paused in Steptoe’s doorway to light his pipe. A notice hung askew behind the glass, announcing that the establishment was closed. "
(We'll require the eBook file sized at 1656 x 2560 and will need the packaged InDesign file as well.)
