Book Covers

Cartoons, art, and typography are all used to illustrate book covers. Usage should be determined by the desired effect and market. For instance, a difficult subject may benefit from a typographical or cartoon solution versus an illustration, which would be too graphic, or a technical title that needs to look scholarly and cries out for simple typography, while an illustration evokes a strong emotional response. What remains is the need for your book cover to grab the attention of the potential reader.
