How to make a book cover

  1. Select an appropriate format for your cover

    Choose the right size so your graphics and text turn out the way you expect. A portrait-oriented, rectangular size is common for book covers, but you can customize the size to your needs.

  2. Consider your theme

    You may consider incorporating thematic elements to your book cover. Consider the theme and genre of your book when making decisions on the look and feel of the cover. You may have previously heard the adage “never judge a book by its cover,” but many people do.

  3. Bring your words to life through visuals

    Have a photo in mind for your cover? Simply upload it to your template and edit it as you see fit. If you aren't quite sure what image you want, scroll through Adobe Spark’s library of free stock photos.

  4. Make your text a treat to read

    Choose a font and style that works for you. Think about your book’s theme, audience, and genre when selecting your text style.

  5. Publish your cover for the world to see

    When your cover art is finished, save and download it to your device or share it online.

Design a cover that tells a story

Think about what story you want your book cover to tell. Remember that this is the first impression the reader will have of your book. Try various filters, adjust the color palette, and play around with the other options until your book cover is just right.
