New Feature Announcement: A Novel Cover Up

I have an announcement to make! Once Upon a Bookcase has a brand new feature - A Novel Cover Up!

A Novel Cover Up will be a semi-regular feature that looks into how covers are made. It will include guest posts and interviews with cover designers, illustrators, and the art department/design teams at various publishers!

I'm really excited to about A Novel Cover Up, and think it will be a really interesting feature! There are a number of posts that are in discussion, some that are in the process of being written, and publishers who are seeing what they can do! I really think it's going to be an awesome feature, and I hope you will stop by and have a read.

The very first A Novel Cover Up post will go live tomorrow, Friday! Be sure to pop back and read the fascinating interview about a cover for a book that is about to be released from a fairly new publishing imprint...

Hope to see you tomorrow!


  1. I LOVE this idea, Jo!! Covers play a huge role in selling a book and also making our bookshelves look rather pretty :) So it's fascinating to get a look into the process of designing them. As the wise Adrian Ivashkov once said: It takes a lot of tries until you hit perfection (except for his parents hehe), and clearly a lot of work goes into covers to make them look amazing. I can't wait to see what you have in store!

    1. Great stuff, thank you! I look forward to seeing what you think about tomorrow's post :D

      I did get a little worried when I saw the title of your Don't Judge a Book By it's Cover feature. Without looking further, I thought the features may be similar. But opposites! Was a bit relieved. I do love your feature! :)
