The Making of a Cover

These past two weeks we’ve been touting beautiful, eye-catching book covers, and talking about why they grab our attention.

Today, I thought it would be interesting to look at book covers from a different angle: the making of the cover.

Here’s an interesting video from Random House Books, talking with book cover designers about their designs:

Love's AwakeningBurning SkyHere’s a link to a blog post on Brandon Hill Photos that shows the cover shoot for Laura Frantz‘s new release Love’s Awakening (an excellent novel!) –http://brandonhillphotos.com/loves-awakening/.

And another link to Lori Benton‘s blog post on the making of the cover for her debut release, Burning Sky (another terrific read!) –http://loribenton.blogspot.com/2013/08/burning-sky-making-of-cover.html.

I’d love to know your thoughts about the making of these covers.
