Zusammenfassung

I am publishing a book written in Russian by my 78 y.old mother.
It is a scientific book about origins of language and thought.
On the front cover we should have authors name at the top (in Russian) followed by the title (also in Russian):
Name: В.С. Мазлумян
Title: О ЗАРОЖДЕНИИ ЯЗЫКА И НАЧАЛЕ МЫШЛЕНИЯ
Note: the font style can be changed, of course, to match the design. Note - there should be no other text on the cover.
Here is a short summary of the book - may be it can help your thinking about the design (but please - do not put this text on the cover):

The author discusses the advancement of the human psyche from its animal origins, which is undoubtedly connected to the development of language and human thought. She attempts to discern the specific events in the daily lives of our ancestors that enabled that development. She further suggests the idea of the connection between the progressive development of psyche and the level and the actual content of mental images which are based on evolving symbolization.

So it a scientific book - about communication between people in groups (also between monkeys). About primitive society - common situations leading to creating symbols / words to describe them, etc.

The design should relate to book's content - which is about communication, not about monkeys or about writings on cave walls.

It is very important to keep the colors light, friendly, warm.
The author actually likes crimson background (cherry, cherry red).

Another thing - there should be no photo of the author on the back. And no description of the author. No English text at all. And we need some space at the bottom of the back cover for bar codes.

Finally - the author is a scientist. And the book summarizes the latest scientific discoveries. So it should have this aura of science about it.

Image height = 8.75"
Image width = 11.618"
spine width = 0.493"
Note - this size already includes bleeding of 0.0625 on each edge.
So please keep characters from being too close to edges.

Was inspiriert Sie und wie stellen Sie sich das Design für Ihr Unternehmen vor?

The publisher allows to use TIF CMYK 300 dpi color file as cover. It should be one image containing front cover, spine, and back cover.

The book size is 5.5"w x 8.5"h, the spine width is 0.493"w, the bleeding on the edges should be 1/16". So the size of the image should be:

height = 8.75" (8.5" + (1/16)*2)
width = 11.618" (5.5 + 0.493" + 5.5 + (1/16)*2)

spine width = 0.493"

So please provide the image which contains the front, spine, and back - all on one image - and with the above proportions. The graphics should not be very busy or intence.

Wünsche

I want something for the front of the book, and something for the back. I really prefer light warm colors. Crimson background may be good.

This is a scientific book - reads like a fairy tale. It is a summary of many latest scientific discoveries. So the design should support this "magic" and attractiveness of science.

Was Sie nicht möchten

I don't want black color on spine or background.

Also please no frames, because when the book will be cut - the distances from edges may differ.

Please - no black backgrounds. No dark backgrounds.

No strong/scary images. The book is written by an old  woman. Her idea was to make cover as a single-toned warm background without any graphics.

The design should not distract from the title and should allow to apply the title on top of it.

Also the bottom portion of the back cover should not contain anything special, because publisher will drop there 2 bar codes.

Also - don't put author's name at the bottom. In Russia the custom is to put the author above the title on the front cover.

Yet another thing - the title should be in all capital letters - same way I have provided it in the summary.

There should be NO text at the back of the book.

The only text on the cover is author's name and the title of the book - both in Russian.

Don't put monkey face on the book just by itself - because this book is not about the monkeys - it is about communication between people leading to development of speech and thinking.
