Please thoroughly review the following information and guidelines prior to submitting.
Here at Silver Leaf Books, we provide our authors with the opportunity to select their own artists and work with them directly. Most authors, however, do not have art contacts and need referrals. SLB maintains a directory of interested artists to recommend to our authors as needed. There is no guarantee that an artist will be selected by an author, but by submitting to SLB, you have the opportunity to potentially be chosen for a future project.
Artwork mostly is used for cover designs, not interior artwork. It is possible an author would have interior art needs, but the information contained here is with the assumption that cover art will be provided. Artists will provide artwork (illustration only, without any kind of labels or titles on the book) in the CMYK color range that is at a minimum 300 dpi (printers prefer 600+). Final dimensions will be based on the book size and will need to cover these specifications at a minimum. All artwork for any Silver Leaf Books title must be unique and not be used (past, present, or future) for any representation other than as it is intended for the title the art is contracted for.
All original artwork remains the property of the artist (unless agreed upon otherwise with the author). However, all art is considered work for hire and can be used by the author and/or Silver Leaf Books in all manners of representation of the book, promotions, and sales globally and without restriction.
To be added to our directory of potential artists, the aspiring artist will provide Silver Leaf Books with the following:
