How to make a book cover

Step 1: Select a style that works with your book

Decide on a portrait or landscape orientation—or you could even go for a different look, like a square. Select fonts and colors that fit well with the book’s style. At the same time, choose whether the focus of the book cover will be on the text or the imagery.

Step 2: Consider your readers

Select images, a title, and other information that will connect with your target audience. Think about other elements of your book cover that you can use to attract readers. Your book cover is the first impression they’ll have of your work, so make it count.

Step 3: Use visuals

Make sure each visual element is cohesive with one another and with the theme of the book. Choose a font that really brings your text to life. Decide on an image that helps to create a visual overview of the book.

Step 4: Share your book cover with the world

Save both the digital and print versions of your book cover in a high-quality format. Now you can print it off or share it online. For example, you can use the cover to promote your upcoming book launch on social media. Let the whole world see your work.
