Writers paint word pictures. Visual artists use paint, pencils, digital media and photography to tell a story, and whether used as part of a larger narrative, placed on the cover of a book or collected into a display, visual art has the power to move us, entice us, or make us pick up a completely different book and read that one instead.

Hosted by Scarlett Rugers of The Scarlett Rugers Book Design Agency and last year’s Judging a Book By it’s Cover presentation, Queermance brings you artwork by Paul Richmond, Anne Cain, Zathyn Priest, L.C. Chase, M Sereno, Raven Schofield, Lea Jeges and Bodie Strain. Raven, Lea, M Sereno and Bodie will be joining Scarlett to to discuss their work, their creative processes and why they do what they do.

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.
