Judging a Book by its Cover Art

Presentation by Scarlett Rugers of the Award Winning The Scarlett Rugers Book Design Agency.

Whether you’re a published author or aspiring writer, you’re going to come up against book covers eventually. You may be filling out a brief for your publisher’s cover art, or you might be trying to direct a cover artist. Do you want skin, do you not? Do you have images superimposed over a landscape? What exactly does your font say about your story?

As much as everyone says ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’,¬†people do. That’s the entire reason we have the saying in the first place. This unmissable presentation will give you an insight into the most frequently made cover art mistakes, how to create impact in cover design, and what exactly your your font choices say about your book–and you.
