If there’s only one group of people who are seriously attached to how their graphics look, it’s writers. We can reiterate that we don’t judge a book by its cover all day. However, at the end of the same day, we will grab the book with the most attractive design. And writers know it, as well as other entrepreneurs.
To make sure your design draws attention, it’s important to visualize it. Now, you and your clients try to see it in your head, but it doesn’t come close to the real thing. Book cover mockups are a much better solution!
Book mockup templates allow you, as a designer, and your client to see how the illustration or graphic will look when printed. And even if you’re not turning to the printing press yet, book mockups are a great addition to your branding kit. They allow you to understand how different designs that are critical to your brand image look on different displays.
From flat and stock book cover mockups that appeal to the strongest readers to interactive and dynamic Photoshop templates with books being held, or books casually chilling next to coffee cups and iPhones, there’s plenty to choose from.
