Sometimes I really get inspired by the layouts on books and CD:s.
While looking at new book titles at my favourite Swedish Internet book store I noticed one about historical leaders (below). I loved the cool graphical layout at the front page so much that I made a scrap lift, a page about my dad. I used papers and elements from Nia Kit by Michelle Martin at Designer Digitals and the font Arno Pro.
I also made a layout template in lettersize, 8½x11, a PSD-file. If you want it you can download HERE.
My own layout above is made in international size A4, so that I can easily print it out. Download A4 size template HERE.
