A Dust Jacket is a loose cover that wraps around a cloth bound hardcover book. The five elements of a dust jacket, should work in harmony, each matching the other in style so the cover will create one complete composition. The cover should match the theme or genre of the book, the style should match the author’s style of writing, images should be chosen to intrigue the reader and draw their interest to the story inside the book. The front cover, spine and back cover are the most visible areas of the book cover and should be designed to catch the readers attention quickly. The two additional panels on the inside front and inside back of the book are the perfect spot to add text, photos, or filler that reflects the story and send a personal message of welcome to an individual that has picked up and opened the book.
