Books displayed on a shelf in a shop need to attract prospective buyers, and the first and most important way that can be done is with an eye-catching cover design. Whether it is very significant to the content of the book, or completely ‘off the wall’ in its design, it is what is going to make people pick the book up and read the back cover.
There are many articles advising designers to look around them and to look everywhere for inspiration, and perhaps some do walk into bookshops and browse the book and magazine cover designs, but I am guessing most don’t often have either the time or the inclination to do that, so today we are bringing you a collection of beautifully designed book covers for your inspiration – some new, some old, and in many and varying styles of design, just like browsing a book store.
Beautifully Designed Book Covers for Inspiration
Hopefully you have been inspired by these book cover designs, and have gained some ideas for your future projects. In website design ‘content is king’, and in books, content is not just king it is everything, however, there still needs to be a draw to attract prospective readers, and books have a small, front page area to do just that.
