LADY LAUGHING

 

The cover of this book is perhaps more important than the content itself. This is because sometimes people just pass over a book with an ugly cover without caring about the content because it looks so banal and unappealing that nobody wants to waste their time reading a snooze-fest in today's day and age. It is often said "Don't judge a book by its cover, " but that's what we actually do most of the time. Before we buy a book and read it, we first get the information about it through a cover and the brief at the end of the book. When walking around in a bookstore, searching for a good read, most of us pay more attention to the book's cover. Below are few things I like about the “Lady Laughing” book cover;

Bold and Readable Author’s Name and Title

 

The author’s name is bold and readable, as this will catch a buyer’s attention from far away. The title is likewise impressive and eye catching. This is a good general rule for most book covers. This is especially important if you ever plan on having your book on the shelf of a bookstore. The cover is also recognizable as a thumbnail picture.

 

The Designer Understood the Book

 

A script cover designer really did understand the book as this actually helped him to make that important and interesting cover. The book cover design made the right sense as it doesn’t look like a book cover design that will mislead we readers by mysterious and unfathomable design. The theme and characters of the design matched my expectation.

 

The Message was Passed Across More Effectively

 

If the book cover is loaded with details and pictures, the target audience might not be able to know what you are trying to convey and might even find the title of the book hard to read from a distance and so might just lose interest and move on. However, this book cover design isn’t loaded with pictures and details, and I found the title and author’s name very easy to locate and read. This is the reason many books cover nowadays follow a minimalist approach as it is easier for a person to read the title and also get to know the theme of the book.

 

I believe both the author and the book cover designer did work together in creating this great book having an excellent cover. Below is a link to check out for book cover design tips and ideas. http://goodbookstoday.com/bookclub/authors-corner/book-cover-design-tips-and-ideas/
