Readers get attracted to books through book covers. The saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” holds true for book covers. A superior book cover design will attract attention and draw people in. The design conveys what is expected from a book. The reader gets a general idea of what the book is all about even before they open the book.

Composition of a book cover

The design of the book’s front cover shows the title and the name of the author. You should include any other text and graphics that will attract the reader. The book’s spine holds the pages together. It is also part of the book cover and should display the title and author’s name. When books are stacked in shelves, the spine is what is seen by the readers. The text on the spine should be readable from a distance. The back design of the book cover must have the ISBN and barcode if you are planning on selling at bookstores and can include a book description, a short biography of the author and testimonials.

You, as the author, are in the best position to decide what book cover design should be used for your book. Take a look at our sample book covers.
