Judge a Book by its Cover

Have you ever judged a book by its cover and wondered why? 

How much does the cover of a book impact why, who to, and how much it sells?

What cover styles appeal to different people and which ones do you like the most? 

If you’ve ever been interested in the process of creating a book cover and all things graphic design, join Ringwood Publishing on the 19th of May at 2pm in Hillhead Library for an afternoon full of workshops from the mind of Ringwood’s in-house graphic designer, Skye Galloway!

The event will consist of a series of workshops to build your knowledge on how to design effective covers, some fun contests to test your familiarity with Ringwood’s covers, and even a secret prize! 

We hope to see you there!
