It used to be said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” However, that old maxim no longer holds true. We are a highly visual culture, and a poor cover can be the difference between someone looking at your book, and someone turning their noses up at it. Today, the publishing industry is spending more and more time and money in creating covers that stand out and look different. Such covers are often striking in their imagery, colours, simplicity, fonts, symbolism, etc.

At BookLab, we work with Esther Kotecha of Ekdesigns. She will collaborate with you to create a book cover that looks professional (as opposed to shouting out “amateur”) and which conforms to current industry values and standards.

Ekdesigns aims to provide a fast, reliable service at reasonable cost to create designs that will enhance and promote your book. Excellence is the end. Good, open communication is the means.


Prices start from £125 per cover. This price may increase if extensive time or changes are required.
