matthewtognarelli got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Design a bold cover for my debut poetry book
Check out matthewtognarelli's Book cover contest…
Matthew Tognarelli has always written at every opportunity between working full time for a local charity. Filling up countless notepads Matthew is the writer and poet behind @druidsnook. Born and raised in northern England along the west coast of Cumbria. A land of mountains, lakes and forests which has shaped his work and love of nature and the environment. 'Urban Hedge' is Matthew's debut poetry book exploring the boundaries of nature and man.
The debut poetry book from Matthew Tognarelli is a journey through the urban hedge into mother nature's world. Urban Hedge is for everyone who has ever went for a stroll. It is the walk from a small town out into the open expanse. A place where you are free to explore your thoughts and where nature survives, thrives and guides you through the static of modern life and provides clarity in her presence.
The audience, would be anyone interested in poetry, but largely like my following a younger audience roughly 18-25 and a mix of genders. People who love nature or are drawn to the idea of reconnecting as well as others who are LGBT like myself or also looking for a sense of bellonging.
Book cover type
I would like to give quite abit of freedom as to the design, however, the themes the poetry collection explore include: nature, its mystical/spiritual elements, the environment, and the contrast between this and the urban/man made impact on it. Which can be interperated as you would like. Some ideas for subject could include the use of mountains/lakes and trees as the book is inspired by Cumbria (in the UK) or some other natural/botanical imagery. I would love something with a bold use of colour, the font I am thinking to use is "Elephant" but I am appy to see what you believe best suits the design and take directive there. The trim size I've selected is 5" x 8" (12.7 x 20.32 cm) and aiming for just over 100 pages.
