Making a Book cover

Ok so today I am going to discuss how to make your own book cover. Book covers can be done easily or done by a Graphic Designer which I am.

A book cover is not just a picture it is your packaging for your book so you are going to want to research some ideas of what other designers have designed for authors. I would recommend looking on amazon. You are going to want to get some high quality images for your cover because you don’t want them to turn out blurry. Also try to go with different formats.

Minimalism less is more. This is a timeless style and usually what I follow when designing.

  1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded
    this onto a coworker who had been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me lunch because I discovered it for
    him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this issue here on your website.

  2. The old saying is that “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover”, but the truth is, we all do. I know that the cover is the single biggest thing that makes me pick up or not pick up a book. To not realize that it’s a huge marketing tool is foolish. Great resource!
