    Book Cover

    For this assignment you will design a book cover of a fictional book you will create. Most people at a first glance do judge a book by its cover. If you are in a store looking for a book you will most likely pick up the book that stands out visually to you and then read the description. Books with good graphics, eye-catching font and good quality covers sell more copies than those without. The main goal of every book cover is to generate excitement. You will design the entire cover including front, back, spine and flaps. You can create your own book or redesign a cover from a book you have already read.
