Judging Books by Their Covers

I received this link via Feedzilla on my Twitter account, and found the topic quite fascinating - L. Anne Carrington

Sometimes book covers can be as memorable as the pages they protect. Erin Moriarty reports on the design process in creating the art for literature's most famous novels and what lies ahead for the future in the digital age.

  1. Wow, I never knew they had meetings with a dozen people to decide on the cover for a book! If I ever get a publishing deal, maybe a dozen people will labor over the creation of the cover of one of my books. Until then, I’ll have to handle it myself, which is what I did for my first self-published novel last month. If you’d like to read about the art process I went through with my cover artist, check out my blog: Adventures in ePublishing.
