The old adage is wrong: people do judge a book by its cover.

It’s well documented that an outstanding book cover attracts the attention of retail merchandising managers and translates into sales. If you’re looking for a book cover design that captures the essence of your story, you really need that professional touch, and that’s where LemonTop come in.

We realise that having spent so much time pouring your heart and soul into your book, the cover design is in danger of becoming something of an afterthought. But the harsh reality of the marketplace is that, if your book has a badly designed or cheap looking cover, potential buyers may wonder whether the writing is of equally poor quality. Our brains process images far faster than words, and an outstanding cover will convey the content of your book in a visually arresting way, drawing your readers in.

Why use us?

No stock imagery and no templates here! We offer a truly bespoke book cover design service. What’s more is that our designers are voracious readers themselves, sharing an office bricked with a variety of books on art, design and more. Their shared passion for good writing, coupled with an unmatched enthusiasm for outstanding design, should assure you that you’re in great hands.

Why not have a no obligation chat with us about your project?

Our multidisciplinary team of artists and designers will produce a highly polished, professional book cover for you.

Createspace, Paperback, Amazon, Hardcover, Ebook, iBookstore, Epub, Lulu, Lightning Source, Smashwords, Nook, Kobo, and more. We will also provide you with guidance and visuals of the developing cover design every step of the way. Sound good? Then let’s get cracking!

What our clients have to say:

“I wanted to express my sincere thanks for creating the perfect cover art for Seeing Double. The book arrived this morning and, although you had provided me with a preview of the cover via email, I was utterly captivated by the high quality and power of the image on the book itself. I’m still amazed by your gift of managing to create an image that captures the essence of the poetry – your choice of colours and the composition itself are an exact fit, succeeding in transporting me to the place where most of those poems came from. That’s an incredible skill you have, and one which will no doubt bring you much good fortune in your career. I am delighted and humbled to know that you are a part of my debut collection.”
