How campbell mattinson started their print or packaging design journey

Company name

The Wine Hunter

Overview

I am the author of The Wine Hunter. This book was released commercially in 2006 but I am releasing a limited edition hard-cover version. The aim of this edition is that it be beautifully produced. It is a romantic tale of a French-Australian who gave up everything to make great wine between 1921-1956.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Buyers of a prestige LIMITED EDITION book. Principally food and wine lovers though this is written in the style of a novel. ***I want people who don't usually buy wine books to be drawn to this story.***

This will be an expensively produced book; the audience and design will reflect this.

Requirements

The front cover of this book will be 200mm across x 235mm down.
The spine will be 32 mm.
This is the story of a great Australian winemaker. He worked between 1921 and 1956.
His name was Maurice O'Shea. He was French-Australian.
There is a picture of his winery here: http://nla.gov.au/nla.pic-an6942405

I want a beautiful cover. Stylish.

Book title: The Wine Hunter
Book sub-title: The real life story of Australia's greatest winemaker
Author's name: Campbell Mattinson

The front or back cover will include these words:
“One of the most remarkable wine books to come my way … It will capture anyone who reads it: this is not a wine geek book but an epic.”
James Halliday, THE AUSTRALIAN

On the back cover:
“(The) Wine Hunter is a breakthrough wine book: an astonishing, cerebral, emotional entanglement of fact and dramatisation, of tender detail and beautiful, expressive words. Has there ever been a wine book written quite this way?” Jeni Port, THE AGE

On the back cover:
"This is the best book on wine to be published in Australia for many, many years”. Max Allen, THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN

On the back cover:
“I started reading a wine book last weekend and finished it on the Sunday night. Literally couldn’t put it down." Paddy Kendlar, Herald-Sun

And:
"Campbell Mattinson is arguably Australia’s most literate, and certainly most literary, wine writer. I ... admire his monograph on the Hunter Valley pioneer Maurice O’Shea immensely.” Jancis Robinson

As an idea of my personal taste, I think this is a beautiful cover: http://www.villagebooks.com.au/shop/prod42.htm

... though the design here doesn't have to be along these lines.

We will worry about getting it print ready later.

Good luck!

Campbell Mattinson.
