The cover page

It has been very exciting three days in the studio. On the last day, we worked on the group shots.

This is to use for the cover and a spread in the book. This one is a bit challenging because if we don’t do it right it will become a big cluttered mess.

First we throw all the animals in and took a register. Good, no one was missing.


Then we arranged them considering the balance of space and colours as we took shots.

The cover photo is a long panorama shape and it wraps the book front to back, all the way around.

We have to remember to leave a space for the title, the author’s name (mine!), the publisher’s name (Search Press), spine and the barcode.
The space for the barcode! I didn’t think of that one.

For the spread in the book, we need to leave the extra space allowance in the centre for the binding called gutter.

See, I am learning new things everyday.!

After many trials we achieved very good photographs.

I am so fortunate to be able to work with such a talented team. Thank you everyone!

I am having an editorial meeting next week for the next book.
