Powerful

Why mince words? You can use the cover to inform prospective readers exactly what they can expect from your book. People tend to appreciate candidness, especially if you’re trying to teach or sell them something. The straightforwardness of this cover will also help convince someone who’s on the fence about your book.

Playful

You might recognize this cover from the thesis template page, and yes, that is intentional. The purposes and tendencies of these two categories of text are similar enough that the same cover design principles apply. You can of course adapt the language and imagery on the cover to better align with the age of your target demographic.

To the point

You don’t have to do anything fancy with your cover to make it look good. Keeping it grounded and to the point doesn’t mean your cover will be ‘boring’ or ‘ugly’. Clean, minimalist designs are perfectly suited to textbook covers.
