This contest is for one book cover; however, the goal of this project is to find a designer for the whole series, consisting of 13 books total. Therefore, it is important for the designer to have a creative vision for all. We will continue to work with the winning designer through 1-on-1 Projects. The designer will be credited on the cover.
The series is entitled “The Teaching of the Heart”. It is a spiritual and philosophical work. The title of the first book is “Leaves of Maitreya’s Garden: The Call of the Heart”. In general, the feeling of the cover should be ethereal, heavenly, empyrean, spiritually elevating, something not connected to the earth.
Format: 5 x 7 inches (178 x 127 mm), paperback.
The full cover should contain bleed: 0.125 inches (3 mm) on all sides.
At this moment, we don’t know the exact number of pages. Perhaps, approximately 200 pages, which means that the book spine will be 0.424 inches (10.77 mm) or so.
The selected designer should be able to provide us with the final book cover files with layers that are editable for publication purposes.
