Book Design

 

For me, I love to see and read books that have nice covers. If the cover isn’t interesting, it’s hard to pull me in to read the book. A design of a book cover should be thought-out and planned on because it’s the first thing a reader is going to see when they lay eyes on a book. A good cover grabs the audience attention to at least pick up the book and read the first page to find out whether on not they would read it. Sometimes

I also find myself liking a book because of its texture or its size. I normally go for books with hard covers and a smooth feel to it. Books that are a few inches bigger than your hand are also convenient for on the go. You can easily take it anywhere with you to read on a plane, train, or even out on a nice day at the park.

    It is funny that we are taught to not judge a book by its cover, but in real life the cover/title is what draws us to read a body of text. I too am guilty of picking up a book in the library/bookstore because the graphic designer who designed it made the book look so nice. As graphic designers, it is our job to make things, such as covers, compelling so that consumers use/purchase those items.

    This is true we as humans we judge books by its cover because thats what the design is supposed to do, get people’s attention so they pick it up.

    I feel super guilty, I judge a book by its cover all the time, I mean I can’t be blamed, if a book have bright and nicely designed cover, they of course will get my attention first, the contents in the books are important but the cover design is super important too, other wish why would writers pay so much money for a graphic designer to design the cover. Even-though Some books may be really boring, but a nicely designed cover will increase the sell, I always buy books with the cute covers to decorate my coffee table.
