For Longbourn's Unexpected Matchmaker, I initiated the design process with a framed portrait of a man from the Regency era. However, I aimed to avoid a cover that resembled a typical framed book plate. Additionally, upon converting the image to a high-resolution format suitable for book cover printing, I found the texture unsatisfactory. To enhance the image, I dove headfirst into digital painting.
After achieving a background painting that met my standards for a cover image, I proceeded to craft the front and back layouts, integrating highlights, the title, and the author name.
What are your thoughts? Did the final cover for Longbourn's Unexpected Matchmaker resonate with you?
