Book Cover Trends
Book covers have a big job … they have to entice readers to pick up the book, be memorable, describe the essence of the book and have impact. Just like fashion, art and decorating — book covers go through design trends. These trends can be anything from similar background color, scenery, font type or any combination of these.
Authors and publishers want to make their books as appealing as possible. Making a potential reader want to pick up their book is key to good sales. The best way to do this is by following the trends that are already attracting readers. Therefore, you’ll see design trends across genres and audiences. So, the next time you’re looking through book lists or walking around the library — be sure to judge the books by their covers.
