A well-crafted book cover or design can delight the senses, streamline the reading experience, and sell more copies.
Join Professor Roger Lathbury of GMU as he explores deeper into the elements that make a book as beautiful to hold as it may be to read. Bring your own book to get feedback on its design.
Roger Lathbury, Professor of English at George Mason University, received his B.A. in English at Middlebury College, and his M.A. in English at Indiana University.
