What a designer should do when they take a brief for a book cover?

First they listen. Then they come at the problem from two directions. First will be researching what visually represents your brief. Second is how to communicate that to a potential reader whose first knowledge of your novel might be the cover image.

This ‘imagined’ cover is a reasonable example. An image that might not have been suitable has been cropped so much that its visual message has changed from threatening ethereal.

This is a royalty free image and the main typeface is Alien League. The original photo file came from pexels.com.

Book cover design costs vary depending on whether it’s an ebook or paperback but around £80 ($100) is a good guide.
