We are a small publisher publishing a new collection of fairy tales.
What's your vision?
We are looking for a cover (front and back, with spine) for a new collection of fairy tales. The title of the collection is Tales of Zo. We are very open to a wide variety of possible cover designs. The setting is a kind of fairy tale land that's reminiscent of traditional European folk and fairy tales, Oz, Wonderland, and Narnia. A design that's similar to the original Wizard of Oz art (by W. W. Denslow) could work, as could the work of Arthur Rackham or other illustrators of Alice in Wonderland or fairy tales from around the turn of the twentieth century. A more modern look could certainly work as well. The texture of the book cover could be very modern, or it could evoke the idea of an old book of fairy tales. Above all, we are looking for a clean, professional looking design. If you want to illustrate particular characters, some of this collection's iconic characters are: the Blue Tailor, the Horse Prince (anthropomorphic), the Wooden Pirate (several limbs have been replaced by magical wooden prosthetics), and the Witch Girl (these characters are very roughly analogous to the iconic characters in the Wizard of Oz). Authors should be listed on the front cover in the following order: Chad Underkoffler Andrew Byers Michaelbrent Collings Michael Hill Scott Kane Jon Zeigler
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
