So today i’m bringing you another…
What do you look for in a book cover design?
“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”
But we all know that it’s so hard not to do this! If a book has a bright colour scheme, along with matching up with the sequels and an amazing texture, what isn’t to love?! Put that next to a book with a generic picture of a girl on the front and hey presto, i’ll walk away.
I basically look for colourful, textured and interesting imagery. I dislike it when books all look the same, like this:
I rest my case. Are they all using the same model and rehashing the covers?! Don’t get me wrong, the cover has nothing to do with the content being bad. I’m sure the majority of books with mysterious dark-haired girls on are brilliant reads, but I just wish they’d have a brilliant cover to go with it!
I’ll now leave you with some of my favourite book covers. I may not have read all of these books, but I can admire from afar!
