Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is subjective what one finds beautiful someone else might consider it ugly. Creating a book cover worthy of captivating one's attention is difficult. It is like a game of cat and mouse, where one hopes to capture their love interest’s attention.
If you are an aspiring author, you know, coming up with a catchy title for your booklet alone a cover is hard. I often turn to music for inspiration & music pop star Joy's songs did the job. Her song heads and Tails helped me find the message I wanted to send through the title and cover to potential readers without saying too much. I made the title white because this colour, it is symbol purity around the world. I chose red for the background.
Red is the loudest colour in the room. It is open to interpretation. To some people, red stands for love, danger, passion; to others, it symbolises anger, revenge and sadness. There is no right or wrong meaning when it comes to the colour red. The reason, why I chose the colour red is that I wanted the reader to interpret the book cover their own way. Every prospective reader needs a clue to what the book is about before picking it up hence the visual centrepiece.
This is the most difficult, part of making a book cover. How do you give someone a clue without revealing your hand? Do you put a universal symbol or do you put an abstract object on the cover? What do you do? I always think its best to create multiple variations of a book cover. For Lie For Me, I created seven different book covers, each with well thought out centrepieces. I think found the one l liked but I am not sure its right. I wonder if you guys could pick a book cover which you would pick?
