This class will help authors make informed decisions about their book design by examining the many functions of a book jacket. We will discuss topics like design elements by genre; the role of research, concept, and tone; using photography and/or illustration; branding a series; endorsements; author photos; printing technology; retail durability; Amazon thumbnails; and design trends. We will show numerous slides and samples in conjunction with each topic. BookPeople and Greenleaf Book Group are excited to present our second year of Austin Publishing University, and tickets are for sale now.
