Set layout for a book

Contest Brief

I need somebody to set a layout for a captivating and modern book we need to print (a tour guidebook). Images and text are ready, we just need to put them in a layout and add some drawn symbols. The book is composed of around 50 pages. There are:
- 2 initial pages
- vademecum (2 pages)
- an introduction
- the main text which will be divided in 17 double pages (one double page for each stop of the tour)
- and a final glossary

I attach an example of a previous version of the layout (example_layout). Now the image has changed (for each stop there are 2 images a more general one and a specific detail). Anyway for each stop you have some elements that repeat: motto, giro, cabala, mestiere, alleate, nemiche and compagnie militari you can use the symbol which is already drawn in the sample. Just pay attention that the number of the cabala changes for each stop and it needs to be updated.
In the 2 pages of the stop you should put a frame for a photo to be sticked in (of dimension 72(width)x86 (high) mm) with inside a camera to signal that this is the photo space (see frame_example_1 and frame_example_2 attached, which are frame used in other books of this series, you can use a different style as you wish) and eventually a moon to signal that this picture can be taken also at night.
The text for each stop is divided in 3 sections: 1) PERHAPS NOT EVERYONE KNOWS THAT 2) RUMOR HAS IT 3) A PALIO TO REMEMBER; we don't like the current boxes. For number 1) and 2) you can put something similar to example_box_1 (attached) .... like not really a box but just a line with the title ... but they should be visually isolated sections. the "A PALIO TO REMEMBER " should instead be in a box and you should drawn in small 3 elements (to be repeated in each contrada): to indicate the Date, the Jockey and the Horse. Also lets put the date in extensive form: like instead of 3/7/1991 --> 3rd of July 1991

Each contrada has 2 images: one which is the full image (which should be the principal image in the page and the other that is a detail of the previous image) since we probably dont have a lot of space you can put the second image (the detail) to overlap on the photo frame so that if we put the photo on it we cover but if we dont put a photo it is still visible. It doesnt need to be perfectly inside... it could go a little bit outside and be a little bit tilted to give the idea of mouvement, like in example_photo_frame_1 (attached). In this example the image is much bigger and take the full page which will not be the case for this book.. but it could be nice for example to put the detail image, instead of dark black, in grey and used as well as background for some of the text.

Next to the title of each stop we should put a "Where" with the address to find the stop.
Finally each stop has a certain combination of colours. These colors should appear as a watercolor scratch like in example_color_1.

I would like to see the example of layout for one stop. I give you the text of this stop (TEXT), the images of this stop (IMAGE) and the color combination (COLOR).
