For my typography and page design course I was given an assignment to design a book cover for any book of my choosing. Things the professor told us to keep in mind were "The best designs communicate the book’s message at a glance, with simple, uncluttered design. Unique, distinctive, bold, colorful graphics work well. Keep the graphic style consistent with the content and personality of the book. Also make sure the font you use for the title is legible from a distance and appropriate for the book’s subject."
