From inspiring self-help books to informational how-to's, from memoirs to cookbooks, nonfiction literature takes up many forms and styles of writing. With such a varied genre, it can be challenging to create the right book cover design for your new publication. Not only does your book cover have to tie your piece together, it should be intriguing enough to attract a reader's attention and sell itself.
Canva empowers you to create your own book cover without the help of a designer with its easy to use design tools and wide selection of expertly designed templates that are ready for use and customization. Start by finding the right cover for your theme — there are designs centering on good eats perfect for a gastronomic memoir, covers featuring fashion, photography, city skylines and even abstract designs.
Can't find exactly what you're looking for? That's where Canva's powerful editing tools and amazing stock image library come in. Search from over a million professionally-shot photos to use on your cover then add any enhancements you want with Canva's advanced filters tool. Play around with over a hundred fonts until you find the perfect one for your title and by-line and edit as much as you want by adding illustrations and backgrounds or changing document colors.
Use your new cover in several ways: share it on social media to promote your new book, send it out to a mailing list to get readers excited, or just download it as a high resolution file ready for printing or distribution.
