Review of “A Graphic Guide for the Self-Published Author”
A Graphic Guide for the Self-Published Author by Farah Evers is an instructional and informational book that shows the everyday person how to create their own book cover. You do not need to have any formal education in graphic design to understand the concepts; it is written in layman terms but also creatively written and edited well. It is amply supplied with pictures of book covers that demonstrate the messages Evers provides.
The book is full of all the knowledge you need to design a book cover, so you will literally be able to create a book cover after you read the book. There is additional information on how to design bookmarks, business cards, flyers, and websites. This book is a helpful tool and an easy-to-understand manual that is communicated with lighthearted language that makes it energized and a quick, enjoyable read. I recommend it to anyone who likes DIY and wants to create a book cover. You will save a lot of money by buying this book and creating your own cover than if you pay a designer to do it. Great book!
