    Making Your Own Book Cover
    Elements of Cover Design

    Chris Ochs

    Despite the old adage "Never judge a book by its cover," that's precisely what every potential reader of your book does.

    In this 90 minute workshop, I'll cover most every part subject regarding the creation of your own successful book cover: effective eye-catching techniques,

    graphic arts and design elements, printing and other physical requirements, software, and even a live demo. All that's left is your inspiration!
