Check out Authentic Media's Book cover contest…
Authentic Media publish books that build up the Christian community, promoting spiritual growth, wisdom, mission and creativity. We publish books from cradle to grave from children's titles to academic monographs and in between have a strong range of biography books and books helping people in their Christian Life. Our audience is readers in the Christian market, and we sell through bricks and mortar retailers in the UK and online retailers. We also sell titles to export markets including Australia and the USA among others.
What's your vision?
***We have decided that the design should in someway incorporate the original book cover. In some cases this isn't available, so we would need to be able to adapt the cover in this instance. I have attached a cover to use. THE COMPETITION HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY 3 DAYS*** As a Christian book publisher with a large back catalogue, we are hoping bring some of these older titles back in to print. We are looking for two book cover templates that we can simply fill in the important details of the title quickly and easily. Over the years, we have released a vast number of titles on different imprints. We will need 2 templates, one with our Authentic Media logos, and one for Paternoster. (Logos attached.) Paternoster have tended to focus on Theological titles and have a more academic feel to them, where as Authentic Media usually release Christian Lifestyle titles, or biographies. It is important at the template has a modern, timeless feel to it. It must be eye catching and stand out from the crowd, but not look like a text book. It would be great if we could easily ensure each title has it’s own feel. Maybe by putting on an image of the original cover, or another image? Attached is an image of an original front cover for you to use in your designs if you wish. This isn’t a must though, and if you feel you can create a gripping cover without, we would be interested to have a look. Here is the link to a title in our Authentic Classics series, which may help give some ideas: http://www.authenticmedia.co.uk/search/product/authentic-classics-through-gates-of-splendour-elisabeth-elliot/185078034X.jhtml We need a design for the front, spine and back of the cover and we must be able to alter the spine width easily depending on the book we are using it for. Publisher - Authentic Media/Paternoster (See logos attached) The back must have space for a description and a barcode.
The Final design should be supplied as full collected files with the press-ready PDF i.e. a zip file including the application files, the images and associated artwork. Colour Saturation Total ink weights in any area of a cover should not exceed 260% and under no circumstances be more than 280%. Any ink coverage over these percentages will cause longer drying times, or indeed prevent the job from drying altogether, therefore risking ‘marbling’ or ‘smudging’ whilst binding/trimming. Bleed at the top needs to be at least 4 mm
