LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
We publish Jewish books and outreach material. This is a children's story book series.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a children's format story book cover for 4 titles in a single series (four covers).
SIZE: 8.5x11 closed, standard bleed, with spine between 7mm and 10mm.
It is a children's book series, so we're looking for a bright, fun cover using an image from inside the book as the main theme for each title. The book covers should flow together as a series, but still be exciting for each title standing alone.
The back of the book should have the other three books covers from the rest of the series on it as cross marketing. Also, a picture of the storyteller and a bio. ISBN and price.
Project must be delivered as press ready PDF as well as open (editable) photoshop/illustrator files.
We will provide the book title names, image artwork for main image(s) on each of the 6 book covers, and back cover text and author image.
This is a series of CLASSIC stories, so perhaps have the series have a classic look to them (i.e. gold border over which the main image is laid). But I leave the creatives up to you ;)
The spine should be between 7mm and 10mm (final to be determind before press).
1. "Sarah! Pick Up the Dime"
2. "The Overturned Inkwell" (or "The Mystery of the Overturned Inkwell")
3. "The Three Sacks of Gold"
4. "The Big Barrel of Wine"
EACH BOOK'S SUBTITLE: Classic Tales As Told by Rabbi Yosef Goldstein
Adapted for print by Rabbi Zalman Goldstein
Illustrations by Joseph Maya
TEXT FOR BACK:
Master storyteller and educator Rabbi Yosef Goldstein (Uncle Yossi) defined the world of Jewish storytelling and inspired generations of young and old with his memorable stories and parables, conveyed in a wholesome and captivating manner.
Drawn from the Midrash, Talmud, and Jewish lore, his beloved stories instill a love of Hashem (G-d), love of the Torah, and love of the Jewish people, planting the seeds for fine character development and personal refinement.

Appearing for the first time in book form, those unforgettable tales come alive for your children and grandchildren all over again.
