The face your book shows to the world—the one on which it will first be judged—is its cover. A professional cover and interior design gives both you and your book credibility and helps to attract potential buyers. But great design is much more than a title with a pretty picture. How can you know if your design is really its best?
Sarah Lapallo Beck, the owner and Creative Director at Inkwell Book Co., will draw back the curtain on her own design process to help you to understand how she creates a finished book. She’ll explain basic design principles and how they apply to books, teach you how to recognize both good and bad design right away, and give you some do-it-yourself tips.
She will also delve into detail on interior book design and how your design choices can enhance or detract from the reader’s experience. This in-depth overview of book design is important information for any author to have, as it gives them the tools, knowledge, and resources to work with a designer or do it themselves.
