Illustrated Book Cover Designs

My book cover designs cover a wide variety of topics. I have designed and illustrated children’s books, all types of fiction, Sci-Fi, graphic novels, none fiction, poetry, self-help books, humorous books, and many more. I enjoy being flexible, and ready to tackle each and every unique project that comes along. I like to gain a feel for a book by reading some chapters and chatting in depth with the author. Once a quote has been agreed, I can begin working. I always keep my clients regularly updated as the design progresses. This ensures that the author always feels in control of the design, and also feels confident that changes can be made if requested. Completed artwork will be professionally formatted and print ready. I can also add the blurb to the back cover, barcodes, logos and any photos if required. The spine will be carefully and accurately sized according to your requirements. If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to message me.

These are some of my latest designs along with testimonials from the authors.

“Writing a book is usually very much a singular endeavour, so the thought of working with an artist on the cover design of what up until then had been my own and very personal project filled me with a certain amount of trepidation. However, I need not have worried. From the outset working with Sam was a joy. Somehow she made sense of all my vague ideas, ramblings and mutterings, and created a cover that not only exceeded my expectations but also – by some magical process! – brought my thousand-year old story to life. I cannot wait to finish my next project and watch from the sidelines as Sam weaves her magic yet again!!”

This is what Karen had to say…

“She’s an incredibly talented artist and illustrator and when I sent her an email inquiring about her process, she emailed me back the next day. I LOVE that kind of service. She worked with us on creating our vision for the book and had lots of great ideas…”

“For Look Down I simply sent her a crude sketch I had done in my clumsy ham-fisted way and she rendered it into a beautifully detailed full-color cover. It required almost no modification at all. I am amazed at Sam’s talent!”

“Sam Wall is amazing. For Assassin Awaken, I just threw out a few ideas to her and she came back with a very creative and professional cover. I had only a few suggestions and she was very receptive to all of them. Sam has an incredible ability to visualise an idea then bring it to the digital canvas.”

“Sam turned a simple concept I had into one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen. Everyone to whom I show the book says, “Paul, this is a beautiful book!” If you want a great cover, just give Sam a little information, get in the flow, and watch a beautiful cover come to life. Five stars, Sam!”

Alan S. Kessler

“Taking my rather vague ideas for a cover, Sam created the excellent artwork I submitted to my publisher for use in designing the cover of my novel. Sam delivered all of the drafts in a timely manner, listening to my feedback, and was a pleasure to work with, her fee reasonable and her manner always professional. I highly recommend her.”
