Cover for a paperback book for executives and business leaders. You have complete creative freedom. Please bear in mind this is for a business readership. We’ve experimented with our own ideas for design themes, and might offer this guidance later in the contest, but to start with we’d love fresh ideas we haven’t thought of.
The book will be printed on white paper using Amazon's CreateSpace and will also be sold on Kindle. The cover needs to work in both formats, and its thumbprint on Amazon needs to be striking and very visual. It needs to include the title, authors’ names, company logo (on back cover and spine), publisher name and address in small letters, a description and several quotes. We provide all the text (which has been finalised as far as possible) in the file attached.
The dimensions for the book are:
Trim size 5.5" x 8.5" (13.97 x 21.59 cm)
Number of pages: 215
To calculate the spine size, Amazon’s guidelines are to multiple the number of pages by 0.002252 so the spine size of this book = 0.48418” (1.230 cm)
