Authors and Designers talking about covers
The website Talking Covers is devoted to interviews with authors, designers, and artists about their book covers. Book covers come to define a book. The design is the public face of your book to the world, and people really do judge a book by its cover. A great cover can drive books sales, whether in stores or online.
“I haven’t looked at it. I want to have a moment of silence first, because I know my novel will never be the same… Seeing your jacket for the first time is the moment when you fully comprehend that what was once a private funhouse is now public. It’s a momentous and surreal shift.”
~ author Maria Semple on receiving her book’s cover by email from her designer
“These days, almost everybody I talk to about Where’d You Go, Bernadette mentions its eye-catching, joyful cover. Booksellers flat-out tell me they think the book is selling so well because of its cover.”
It’s a great website with amazing covers. Enjoy!
