I must receive FINAL poster by 5PM TODAY – Friday April 20, 2012.
(And that includes anyone who already submitted but wanted to make some final edits.)
You were supposed to send me a PDF of your final on Wednesday. If I have not received, you must email it to me ASAP. If you sent it and did not get an email back from me, it means I never received it – please send again or use one of the two website’s I recommended (see Week 10).
For the Grace gallery show I will take care of the printing and mounting – but I need your file by 5PM. (We will still print a final poster in class on Monday.)
And thank you to all whose posters I did receive. Your hard work is noted and appreciated!
Project 2: Book Cover Design
Please review the following list of books. I would like you to select a source book for which you will develop a cover design. You may choose a book that is not on this list but please seek my approval before proceeding.
The advantage to choosing a book from this list is that you will not run into copyright issues. All selected books are public domain titles and have text readily available on-line through multiple sources. I recommend checking Project Gutenberg (www.gutenberg.org) for full-text downloads on these titles.
Cover designs MUST include the book title and author’s name; you are not required to feature any additional text.

1. Select a book: Author and Title
2. Visit Barnes and Nobles online and research book cover designs in the Best-selling list for your genre: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/Classic-Books-Barnes-and-Noble-Classics/379003245
Additional We will discuss this in class next week:
Looking at a complete book cover (wrapped around a book) laid flat you will see the back cover, spine, and front cover, in that order from left to right. So allowing .125 for trim around each edge, your width formula is .125 + cover size + spine width + cover size + .125.
The formula for spine width is page width ( typically.002252) times final number of pages. So for a 300 page book the spine width would be .68 (.002252 x 300).
