Designing the Perfect Book Cover

Your book cover is one of your most effective sales tools, and it has to convey the story in a way that generates interest and curiosity. In this presentation with graphics designer Sharla Wailes, learn what decisions are key in designing a book cover as a harmonious blend of font types, technical specifications, and art.
