We need a cover for a hardback hymnal. Format is 6" x 8.33". Title is "Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs." It should also say "Phrased Notation" on the cover. In short, the cover should have the title and layout designation, much like a Bible cover has "Holy Bible" and "New King James Version.”
This hymnal contains 550 standard hymns + 300 of all genre, including contemporary songs, folk hymns, high church hymns, etc. The cover needs to reflect that content. We do not want the hymnal cover to appear modern, but we do not want it to be on the other extreme either—not too ornate or gaudy. We would lean far more toward toward the formal rather than the informal, with a "classic" look. Our own efforts have employed Celtic artwork, but no crosses or other denominational artwork, please.
The title font should be in BakerSignet. The layout designation (i.e. "Phrased Notation") should be Arial or BakerSignet. We are allowed to have text that is both embossed and dyed as well as artwork that is embossed (dyed or non-dyed, either way).
