If you keep up with us on Facebook or Instagram, you know that we've been preparing to reveal our cover design. And as much as everyone uses the phrase "Don't judge a book by its cover," the reality is that we all do — and for good reason: a book's cover is its first chance to grab our attention, to communicate the story within its pages, to convince customers that it will be worth their time and effort to read — no pressure!

Lucky for us, we discovered Steve Leard, a phenomenal cover designer based in the UK who has a knack for working on nonfiction books. You can check out some of his other designs here.

We told Steve that we were looking for a cover that would capture the concept of our book in a simple, striking image. Maybe a picture, maybe an illustration...nothing too intricate, but then again, not necessarily a minimalist design, either. Needless to say, Steve has the patience of a saint and, talented designer that he is, came back to us with an array of brilliant designs to choose from:
Cover Option 1
Cover Option 2
Cover Option 3
Cover Option 4
Cover Option 5
Cover Option 6
Cover Option 7
As you can imagine, after receiving these options, we had some thinking to do. We were able rule out a few cover designs right off the bat, but choosing between our top three was an agonizing process.

Which cover do you think we chose?
After many conversations, some artistic revisions, and just a little bit of tearing our hair out, we finally arrived at a decision. We chose the cover that we felt had a bold, clean design; an iconic image that will forever represent 2020; and an emotionally-neutral but vibrant color.

Drumroll please...
Well, you may not have seen the book yet, but you can certainly judge its cover. We hope in doing so it checks all of the aforementioned boxes for you. 

Thanks again to Steve for bringing our vague, aspirational ideas together in one incredible book cover. 

We'll be in touch soon with the winner of our first giveaway and our pre-order link. Now that's an email you won't want to miss!

Until next time,

Steve Fowler
The Editorial Team at Hindsight
