As a part of the research for my book cover I have looked at numerous book covers that grabbed my attention however my book cover design needs to be related to the content of my book.
Covers I have looked at:
For the cover I have used the letters I made last year for my plaque. I made those using fabric, needle and thread. This will show what type of work you can expect in the book 3D, interactive, hand made props etc.
The only letter that was missing was “L” but using Photoshop I have managed to recreate it.
For the background I considered torque colour as it features a lot in my book.
I will opt for a hard cover so hopefully it will work well. My intention was to keep the cover simple as there is already a lot going on inside the book. In my head it makes sense but I cannot stress more how much book designing is not my type of thing so I am trying my best to make it look professional rather than tacky.
