    The Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements at the turn of the twentieth century stimulated a modern renaissance in book cover design that soon began to infiltrate the growing mass book industry through the more progressive publishers in Europe, London and New York. Some of the first radically modern cover designs were produced in the Soviet Union during the 1920s by avant-gardists such as Alexander Rodchenko and El Lissitzky. Another highly influential early book cover designer was Aubrey Beardsley, thanks to his striking covers for the first four volumes of The Yellow Book (1894–5).

    Canva also gives you access to a library of over 1 million stock images, graphics and illustrations. Many of these images are also free, while premium images are all priced at just $1.

    Work within your genre. Reflect on who you are as a writer, and what genres your writing fits into. This will help you determine a theme around which to center your cover.
