Custom Book Cover Design Service

The book cover design is often argued to be the most important aspect of a book, as this is what catches the reader’s attention first and is often the ultimate factor in the purchase decision. Why opt for a templated, basic cover that might lose a reader’s interest when you can ensure that your book cover design is entirely unique?

In a nutshell

Work with one of our talented designers to produce a one of a kind, custom book cover design that will ensure your title stands out from the crowd. Your designer will collaborate with you to create a bespoke, beautiful, high-quality masterpiece that truly reflects your work.

Why do we do this?

We include the Book Cover Design Service as part of our publication services, as we believe that a unique and high-quality cover can make all the difference towards a book's reputation. The Book Cover Design Service is also available as a stand-alone option, which means that you can ensure your book cover design truly reflects the tone and content of your work, and can use it wherever and however you choose to publish. 

How do we do this?


Rowanvale Books have been amazing. Unlike a self publishing company I previously used, they showed great care for my work and because of that my book is all the better for it.

Bethan's communication at the beginning was extremely helpful. Hannah has been outstanding for months, whenever I've needed something she's always been able to provide it. I'm very grateful for Sapphira's work too, when the first edit was complete I noticed the difference straight away and can't thank her enough for it.
The quality of the specifics in the illustrations far exceeded my expectations, and I've just this moment heard that the first child to see the artwork has loved it.

Overall I'd highly recommend Rowanvale Books to anyone wanting to self publish. They have made the entire experience a joy and it has been great value for money.
