Good job and good communication.

Final Design to be delivered in as and unflattened Adobe InDesign or Photoshop File. Thanks.
The book is a organised in seasons, showing through story telling spreads, the winery, the vineyards, and the winemakers throughout a full 12 months.
Not a collection pretty vineyard photos but a photojournalistic set of spreads telling the story of a working winery over the year. The cover needs to get this across.
There will be few words in the book. Just an intro to each season.
See my Other info for a look inside the book and to grab images for the cover.
Looking forward to your submissions. Looking for a creative, compelling photobook cover design.
