Book Cover Series Designs
When you go to a bookstore or a library, how do you choose a book to pick up? Ultimately, we do judge a book by it’s cover. So much success in the literary field depends on a small amount of space (the cover). An author may have a expertly written novel, but who would know unless they were tempted to pick that book up out so many options? Ultimately, the success lies on whether a designer can effectively grab the attention of the viewer within such a small amount of space.
