80% of people say that the cover plays a huge role in their decision to buy the book, even when they go to the store with a particular book in mind. People can be easily persuaded by an eye-catching visual and a good design, so keep this in mind as you create your cover. A good book cover uses design elements like color, font, images, or illustrations to reflect key themes that are relevant to the text and helps readers to understand a little more of what it’s about. For this project you will select either your creative self-portrait or your Photopea type portrait to be the image, the attached PDFs will guide you through the creative process and help you make professional font, layout, and color choices.
