Sandra Staub

What You’ll Learn

Are you publishing a book, or do you need to design a book cover for a client? Sandra Staub is showing you how it's done.

We’re told from childhood to “never judge a book by its cover.” But in reality, covers offer valuable clues to potential readers about what they may find inside a book.Books with eye-catching covers are more likely to be picked up from the bookstore shelves (or clicked on when browsing online). And that’s the first step a reader takes before purchasing a book. So how do you design a book cover that sells?

If you've followed Sandra's series, you know that Sandra is creating a complete merch collection based on her illustrations. Below are all the links to all the items, if you're curious. Which we're pretty sure you are! So check them out.
