“A picture says a thousand words” – these words have been written on book cover and I think it’s really the truth. The book cover is one element that usually catches the most attention of the readers and visual memorisation is the strongest one. Without reading the entire book, you could be able to get the concept of the story just by looking at the book cover design.
In this post, I compiled a list of beautiful book cover designs created in a lot of different style such as photo-based, typographic, and black & white. Hope this showcase will inspire you in creating your own unique book cover. Get inspired!

Your book cover can really represent what you are writing and what you really are. It is a form a communication to your target readers so choose and design the right book cover that you will use.
