Reclaiming Paula: The Life and Career of Paula Yates
Marie works in an academic enhancement role in the private higher education sector in Ireland. Prior to this, she worked as an academic librarian for 30 years in the university, institute of technology and private higher education sectors. Marie enjoys writing in her spare time with a particular interest in biographies.
Paula Yates is dead twenty years on the 17th September, 2020. During that period, her memory has been overshadowed by the tragedy that dominated the last few years of her life. Paula's life is now also viewed and appraised almost exclusively through the lens of Michael Hutchence's. This book reclaims Paula's memory and story in her own right with objectivity and empathy. The book draws on an extensive range of print and digital sources to reexamine her life and career. What emerges is a very different narrative and image to the one perpetuated by the mainstream media and other publications.
The book will appeal to women with an interest in eighties music and pop culture figures. It will also appeal to Michael Hutchence fans. (Dont add this particular info to the book. Many thanks.)
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
I cannot afford to buy a photo for a front cover. I was was wondering if the designers could design a cover with image of Paula. I love images of her like this https://m.ebay.ie/itm/The-Tube-TV-Paula-Yates-10x8-Photo-/163223230079?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1 and also this https://m.ebay.ie/itm/The-Tube-TV-Paula-Yates-10x8-Photo-/163223230079?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1. Not too close to the original re copyright. I like when she holds the mic as my book focuses on her career. I've seen sketches of famous people before and they work well. See Debbie Harry http://emilygrayart.moonfruit.com/shop/4594440038/debbie-harry-blue/11332288 and David Bowie https://www.cartoonbrew.com/rip/david-bowie-rip-130065.html
What to avoid
No. Just not producing an image too like an original.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
