Orchestra book cover design

Brief: to create a coffee table book. entitled Orchestra, your design does not have to be the entire book, but can simply be the front and back cover. The book cover can be anything you want as long as it en-captures and aspect of the word Orchestra. Important points to remember would be that the cover is a wrap around. This is to say that the cover is ongoing all the way round, so your design must fit in with this. The dimensions of the book cover are 305 mm, by 255 mm.
