Default TE Book - Cover

A very important issue to present in a most tempting way this book by a good cover.
A nice challenge for everyone with design ambitions to let their creative cells work making suggestive proposals that can be evaluated and selected here.
Who dares to take this challenge on ?

All I can say is that if we choose or vote for one single shot, then, the idea of a community behind the book is missing on the most important introduction to the book to outsiders, its cover.
Is this a TE book or a photography book?.... is what I mean.

Just an idea.

Why don't we create a "photo mosaic"? We could take a picture of the earth globe and with the help of a photo mosaic software and using some of pictures from the book create a photo mosaic of the earth.

I did a quick test, it's not really well done, and the colour are not so great but this will gives an idea of what I have in mind. click here photomosaic.

very good idea, IMO. I had mentionned having bands full of photographs springing out the earth, but design and me makes 2, I must admit...Hard enough to frame 3 people in the same shot nicely, for me.... :-)

This seems like the best idea to me, of all teh ones I've seen. Certainly one shot would undermine the idea.

this is really a cool ideia, not new but cool.

Just a problem imo, the photos of the musaic will be sooooo small that no one will understand it.

The "photomosaic" is used usualy for big works with big scale,at least for poster like for a movie,maybe you You have seen "The Truman Show" movie,the poster of the movie was in this way/style,and I love this poster,too!

But,for a cover of a book,using a lot of mini pictures with a title,TE logo,...with notice to scale and size of a book,will make an eye confusing for viewer at first time that they see the book.

Most of designers don't use photomosaic for a book usually.

cheers!

hello Friends !

This is my first reply in this wonderful great project,with 4 Km replies!:)

I was in connect with Cesar.

Count me in for every matter,just becareful about my poor english!

But for Cover :

this is very very important for a book,and for a photography book more than the other books.
We must use a "professional designer" for the cover,I have some great friends who works in this motif.
in our friendly world(my friends and I),they can design a cover for us,without any money and it will be a gift by one of them,but we will printed his name as cover's designer.

They will work(at least one of them),and will create a few pre design.

I will contact them as soon as possible,but some idea :

- must be simple (not very busy,and full of elements)

Material:

* TE logo(with its colors)

* "Learning about the world through photography"

* a few shots :at least 4 and max 8(will faded to others,small,big,...with some effect which Designer will suggest)

*...(You can say another..)

-------

Who will approve the final cover? a person or a group?

I'm at your service my friends :)

cheers!
Mohammad

Very nice contribution!
The title would be chosen later on, when themes are defined. There is no need to do it now, but we should start brainstorming already...

The picture of the cover to me should be "colorful", and mainly a portrait.
many thanks for your support.
