Design an elegant, dark, mysterious, natural looking paperback + eBook cover for a shamanistic magic fiction.
I have attached the current eBook cover to give you all a basic idea on what to improve on.
I need it to look more book cover-like, not too out there and fantasy-ish, but more simple, elegant and mysterious. The only image I want on the cover is the hand-drawn leaf that I have also attached, centered in the middle of the cover (the leaf CAN be resized smaller to fit title + subtitle, just not too much where it loses detail).
I would like the border to be LEAFY/VINEY (meaning tree/plant-like vines and leaves), witchy, curvy, artistic, natural looking and black. Size of the border is up to the designers, please use your creativity, I am open to ideas - border is very important.
The use of shamanistic/psychedelic plants/entheogens is a common theme in the book so it must have a natural look to it.
For colors - please stick to darker and lighter neutrals, mainly black and white, I am open to the use of dark/light greys as long as the full quality/detail of the leaf stands out and isn't affected, please use your creativity.
Font - Please use the same, similar or a natural looking, elegant, cursive/italic or viney font.
Dimensions for the paperback: 5.5 x 8.5 inches
The rest is up to the designers! I look forward to seeing your ideas/work.
