How to Sell a Book
by Its Cover?

The saying goes: "don't judge a book by its cover". Why? The cover design wasn't depicting the book's content. Now let's change the saying.

If you want to get a lot of sales, link the content to the book cover and add text, maybe a brief synopsis, a picture of the author, and/or a quote from famous critiques.

What should a book cover include?

A book cover must include the title, the subtitle or tagline (if there is one), the author’s name, a book summary, and imagery related and evocative of the book’s subject. You can also add a short bio of the author and testimonials to create a positive first impression. Another element to consider is the book spine, as this may be the only visible part when the book is placed on a bookshelf. This must include the title and an illustration or imagery that connects the front with the back of your book.

How to choose a font for your book cover?

Choosing a font for your book cover is as important as everything else. You can choose up to three different fonts: one for the title, one for the subtitle, and one for the block of text from the back cover. The fonts have to represent the book’s subject and genre: serifs are classy, matching a traditional topic; sans serifs are versatile and go with anything contemporary; scripts fit in the world of art; bold, digital fonts can be used for an animation book. For the back cover, where your book summary will be, choose a legible font.

Can I upload my own photos into the book cover maker?

Yes, you can upload your own photos into our tool by dragging and dropping them onto the canvas or from the Elements > My Uploads section. The possibilities are endless because you can edit the photos however you want. For example, in just a few clicks, you can adjust the blur and opacity levels, add a filter, crop it, or add text on it. The best part of our online design tool is that it's intuitive, and you'll create a design in minutes.

The Book Covers Its Story

When creating a book cover, there are a few things to have in mind to attract your readers. The cover has to relay a small amount of information that can be found in the content.

It doesn't have to tell the whole story, but an element or illustration has to inspire readers to further investigate and be curious about what's behind that beautiful and mysterious cover.
