Almost every reading enthusiast or avid writer can spot some of the most iconic books simply by their covers. Classics like Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, and many others have such distinct book covers. But have you ever stopped to research the history and stories behind those covers?
Book cover design needs careful thought and consideration. Contrary to popular belief, authors often aren’t even a part of the process. Rather, designers work with editors and publishers to create a masterpiece that is both marketable and distinctive.
