Book Covers by Canva
People have been saying for years not judge a book by its cover. Now you can tell them to judge all they want because you’re sure to have an attractive one ready for your next best-seller. Book covers today are often simple, revolving around a central imagery that’s symbolic and can capture the essence or theme of the plot with one glance. That sounds complicated enough but take the sheer amount of book genres out there, and coming up with a book cover to attract readers can be a monumental task. However, with Canva’s design templates at your disposal, you can easily come up with a beautiful book cover of your own without having to hire a designer.
Browse through hundreds of layouts and pick from the most popular book genres such as romance, thrillers, biography, travel and nonfiction. Turn it into exactly what you need through Canva’s easy-to-use design tools. Start with the main image by uploading your own photo or graphics or by searching from over a million expertly-shot images in our library. Enhance your image by trying out different filters such as drama and epic then fine-tune image details such as tint, brightness, contrast and saturation. Choose from over a hundred fonts to use for your title and pick the right font color using the template’s suggested color palette. Once you’re happy with the design, you can download a high-res version for print or promote your book by choosing to share the new cover through social media.
