To celebrate this year’s annual London Book Fair we’ve created a gallery of inspiring images that would work perfectly on a book cover.
There are no rules when it comes to picking an image for your book cover, but after speaking to our sales team, we’ve put together a few tips for anyone new to image buying.
• Is your image creative or unique?
• Does it evoke emotion?
• Does it begin to tell the story and give the reader an idea of what to expect from your book?
• Do you need a few images for your cover to get exactly what you want? Designers often grab elements from different images instead of compromising on the final look.
We’ve put together a selection of some of the most popular book genres from the last year, and some great image ideas for each of them. Click on the genre to take a look at mood boards hand curated by our Director of Photography Alex Bortkiewicz.
