Fantasy Fiction Book Cover Design

We designed a book cover for The Captain of the Black Guard, a fantasy fiction novel published in print and online.

  • The author wanted a moody, forest-y cover. She researched and found stock illustrations, which we used and manipulated during the design process.
  • The silhouetted figure depicts the main character, whose authoritative and anticipatory pose draws the reader in.
  • For the title and author name, we used a Medieval style font to reflect the era depicted in the book – Galahad Standard in large and small caps.
