In a lot of ocassions you mustn´t judge a book by its cover, but the appearance´s cover influence in a important way in order to sell a book, specially when we don´t have its content very clear. It´s funny design a cover book when you make jobs about editorial design and layout.
The cover book must convey its essence, even increase it. In the process of creation, we can distinguish two kinds of job, creative and technic.
For the creative process from cover book is important to know his content and what talking about, of this way we can create ideas around the main subject and later we choice the most interesting for the audience. On this process, that seem easy, we waste more time in order to draw sketches and find creatives ideas for our cover book.

The backbone size depends of many factors. Mainly the amount of paper, and also the kind of paper, kind of bookbinding, etc… This change in the backbone will be able to do the printing or the designer.
When the printing tell us that all is right, only we must wait to finish the print process in order to have the final product in our hands.
