A book cover is an artistic form of communication that uses visual means to attract attention and convey the minimum vital information to entice the customer to learn more about it. It works like a peephole through which we can get a glimpse of the text inside.
Let’s learn what makes a great book cover design. Keep in mind that the book’s content and its cover are always entwined. It’s all about the idea/feeling that you want to transmit.

Why Do Book Covers Matter?
People have been judging books by their covers for ages now. Even now that we have other criteria to evaluate before purchasing a book, like customer reviews and ratings, book covers are still a compelling reason to purchase a book. A book cover offers potential purchasers the possibility of either diving inside or turning back. One must be able to imagine what a book will be about by just looking at the book cover. This is why it’s so important that you know how to design an attractive book cover that will draw in readers. Placeit has plenty of different book cover templates, covering subjects from fantasy book covers to recipe book cover. Go ahead and check them out!
