What's your vision?
Covers for e-book (600 x 800 px), 5x8 hardback, 5x8 paperback, audiobook (CD), and a business card. E-Book Cover •600 x 800 pixels •Amazon specifies 300 ppi. •General guidelines here: http://thewritersguidetoepublishing.com/self-publishing-tips-cover-art Note how this art differs from a traditional book cover, which tries to get attention sitting bookstore shelf. In online listings (example: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=gemma+halliday), the thumbnail is all you can put out there to attract attention and (hopefully) a click. Some advice I've found is to use a big, nonserif fonts and an image that conveys well in a small format. Paperback Cover It's more or less the same front-cover image as the e-book cover, just at a resolution suitable for a digital color press and adjusted to Amazon's specs below. Amazon provides a template that might be easy for you to work with: https://www.createspace.com/Help/Book/Artwork.do Their specs are: •A single PDF that includes the back cover, spine, and front cover as one image. •Any size page as long as the printable area is: •5 x 8" front, 5 x 8" back, .2375 spine width, and .125" bleed •Centered horizontally and vertically •Minimum Cover Width: 10.4875 including bleed •Minimum Cover Height: 8.25 including bleed Hardback Cover More or less the same as the Paperback Cover. •Minimum Cover Width: 15.7375". This includes two 2.25" flaps. •Minimum Cover Height: 8.75". Audiobook (CD) Here is what Amazon says: https://www.acx.com/help/rights-holders/200474610#cover-art-specs It looks like the front cover is all they allow - no spine, no inside material. I guess they ship just the CD in a sleeve or something. Business Card Book title: Sex: What Your Parents Didn't Tell You Author: Michael Rittenhouse Link: www.orthosexuality.com I would like to see designs with and without the attached photo.
