We need a cover designed for Kathleen's new book.
Title: "The Profit Machine in the Hospital Basement:
Turning Your Lab Into an Economic Engine"
Author: Kathleen A. Murphy
Publisher: Ellsworth Press
[The words Title, Author and Publisher should NOT appear on the cover--they are used here as labels only]
Cover designs at this point should be front cover, spine, and back cover for a softcover version
However, because the book will be offered in 2 formats, Hardcover and Softcover, the final artwork submitted will need to be in both formats.
Here are the specs for what you will need to deliver as final artwork:
FOR THE SOFTCOVER EDITION:
Trim size is 6"x9"
Front and back design needed
Title, author and publisher imprint on spine (no more than 5/8" wide)
Back cover should include copy, as well as small headshot of the author, room for publisher imprint, ISBN number and bar code.
FOR THE HARDCOVER EDITION:
Design is for a dustjacket, 9-1/4" high x 20" wide.
This includes front and back cover, front and back flaps of 3-1/4" each, and spine of 1-1/4" wide.
Title, author and publisher imprint on spine
Back cover will have copy, publisher imprint, ISBN number and bar code.
Front flap will have copy.
Back flap will have author photo and bio copy.
Publisher is Ellsworth Press. Please include design of simple text logo for Ellsworth Press, and an E for use on the spine.
This book is aimed at the executives and administrators in hospitals. Please do NOT use lab or hospital paraphernalia in your design.
NO syringes, test tubes, stethoscopes, etc.
We like the idea of a door to the laboratory, perhaps with the hint of money or a printing press behind it. However, we are NOT tied to this concept. This is just a start. Feel free to experiment with other creative concepts.
