This is interesting … a time-lapse idea of how a designer combined and altered images to create a book cover.
Not shown is this bit: “I left out the not-as-riveting-onscreen stages of my cover design process, such as reading the manuscript, sifting through Alexia photoshoot outtakes, background photo research, etc. And since this is a series look that has already been established for Soulless and Changeless, there weren’t the usual batches and rounds of versions of different designs that happen with standalone or first-in-a-new-series covers.”
Wow. This designer puts some work into it.
Some interesting book jacket sites that I stashed on Delicious:
- Book Cover Archive
- Book Design Review (sadly, this blog has recently ceased – still worth a browse)
- Judge a Book By Its Cover
