In this video, graphic designer Laura Keung will show you how to design a book cover. Designing book jacket covers can be intimidating, but you’ll learn how to set up a book cover template that you can reuse over and over again. Using the Page Tool, you will set up every section of the jacket as its own page to make the book cover template easy to alter. You’ll also use very basic InDesign tools to create an elaborate design piece.
