Book Design: Use of Cartoons
MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!!
Your book cover is more than you see…it’s what you think as well. More than once a new publisher has come to me with a cartoon for their cover ‘because all the other books in the catagory’ had used a similar image so it must work. Not necessarily true.
Cartoons. Is your book funny? Does it need to be introduced in a non-threatening way? Leave your options open to other possibilities when you hire a designer.
Knowing the right questions to ask make all the difference in the final result.
