The Anatomy of the Book Cover/ Book Cover Design
Designing book covers that captivate the viewer is a specialized skill set. The cover of a book needs to convey the magic of hundreds of pages within a single image, transporting readers into the world the author has created. In this online course, Pinaki De will introduce one to the basic skills one needs in order to design a book cover that could become as memorable as the book itself. The course will include a glimpse into a live project of Niyogi Books and a session with the COO and Director of the publishing house, Trisha De Niyogi. There will also be interaction sessions with publishers and editors offering their points of view in order for the mentees to understand what is required of them from an editor’s perspective. This carefully curated edition of AMP, thus, provides the mentees with a holistic approach towards book cover design.
