L Boone County Public Library BCP Every great book should have a great cover! Many of the classics, however, lack interesting covers and therefore fail to grab the interest of new readers. In an effort to get people reading the classics again, Recovering the Classics was created through a partnership of the White House, New York Public Library, and the Digital Public Library of America. People across the globe were invited to re-imagine book covers for classic works of fiction in the public domain and their work has since been exhibited in many venues across the country. Boone County Public Library is holding its own Recovering the Classics Contest and we invite you to participate by creating a cover for a classic book on our select list. Book covers will be displayed at the Main Library April 3 through May 31. Entries will be judged by a panel of local artists and one winning book cover will be chosen from each of the following categories: Child (grades K to five), Teen (grades six to twelve), and Adult. Cover Requirements: • Depict the front cover for one of the titles from our list • Prominently display the book's title and the author's full name • Vertically-oriented, 11" x 17" • Full bleed image (no margins or borders) • Text should be at least 1" from the edge • Two dimensional, rendered in any medium Winners in each of the categories will receive a physical copy of their chosen book with their art as the cover. Contest rules, the list of selected titles, and entry forms are available at all BCPL locations and our website. Entries can be dropped off at any BCPL location and must be received by March 1, 2018.
