Book Cover Templates for Word & PDF

We all know the saying “Do not judge a book by its cover”, yet we all do just that. It is the psychology of human nature that we use our sense of sight to make first impressions and initial judgments. Due to the demand, it is becoming easier and easier for authors to find good quality, eye-catching book covers templates.

Few things to consider first:

  • What message do you want to send with the cover?
  • What is the target audience?
  • How can you generate excitement for your cover?
  • Set the tone before you start the design process.
  • The book genre can also play a large role in the design of the cover; Indicate something about your universe to hint at what’s to come.
  • Do not forget to look into minimalism.
  • Take some time to look into sources for ideas and where to store them.
  • The design should also make sense, even in thumbnail size.
  • Be careful not to show too much of your character and give away important aspects of the novel.
