We are now at the stage where we need to make the final decision on the cover design of our first book “Wanderlust”. It’s a hard choice with endless designs, techniques and materials to choose from. Many months ago we decided that we want a hardcover book covered by off white cloth/canvas with only the title written on it. The great thing is that we still want to stick with this, but we are not sure what technique, design or color we will use for printing the title. Embossed, debossed, foil, hot stamp, white on white, gold, black, uv-spot, big and bold, small and stylish… as said, endless options. I had brekkie with some friends at Planet Video in Mt Lawley the other day (fantastic book, video and music shop as well as a sweet cafe!) and of course I sneaked into the bookshop afterwards to scan the covers for some inspiration and feel of the different techniques – even if I think I know every bookcover currently on the shelves by now.
