We would like a design including at least 4 images with books and the 4 seasons of the year. Their placement and ordering, I leave up to your imagination.
We would also like our logo to read “Peace Hill Press” in large font and “books for a well-trained mind” in smaller font. Again placement and fonts and other specifics, I leave to your discretion. to the left of the word mark I'd like to have this graphic (resized and colored to match your design) placed http://www.welltrainedmind.com/logo-php.png
The design needs to fit with magento commerce blue skin theme found at demo.magentocommerce.com It's a great starting point
Incorporate a good design for buttons for add to cart and checkout as needed.
