Front, spine and back of book cover design. We have several images from an artist that I would like the designer to incorporate into the design. Only ONE of the images should to be used -- I am agnostic as to which is selected -- let your creativity lead the way. The designer will probably do best by zooming in or abstracting a section of one of the art.
The spine and back should have our logo and room for an ISBN/barcode. We may have a blurb/endorsement coming soon, so would like space on the front and/or back to place that blurb.

TEXT FOR BACK (SUBJECT TO CHANGE; the names of the plays, the book and the movie should be italicized, ):
For the first time in Botswana’s history, drama moves from the stage to print. We Are All Blue consists of two award-winning plays by Donald Molosi: Blue, Black and White and Motswana: Africa, Dream Again. Quett Masire, Botswana’s second president, contributes the foreword to this unique volume.
Blue, Black and White (2011), the longest running one-man show in Botswana’s history, was the first-ever Botswana play staged off-Broadway in New York City, where Molosi won a best actor award. BBW is about the country’s first democratically-elected president, Sir Seretse Khama, and his interracial, transformative marriage. Winner of several awards, the play has been performed around the world.
Motswana: Africa, Dream Again. is the story of Botswana and its people as they transition from a British colony to an independent state. The play premiered off-Broadway in 2012 where it won an award at the United Solo Festival, the world’s largest solo theatre festival. Written, directed, and performed by Molosi, the play has been performed across the U.S. and is on tour in Botswana and South Africa.
Donald Molosi is a classically-trained actor and award-winning playwright. He holds an MA in Performance Studies from UCSB, a Graduate Diploma in Classical Acting from LAMDA, and a BA in Political Science and Theatre from Williams College.
Molosi is featured in A United Kingdom, opposite Golden Globe and Emmy award nominee David Oyelowo and Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike. The film depicts the marriage of Prince Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams in the 1940s and the uniting of the people of Botswana.
Molosi divides his time between Botswana and the United States.
