7 1/2 – Fairy Tales

Your fairy tale should be typed and edited at this point. If it’s not, you are behind.

This week, we will be making our book covers in Photoshop.

Learning Goal: I can create a book cover that conveys the intended purpose (fairy tale genre) and audience of my story by using the following:


  • The fonts used for the title and author reflect the genre of the book and convey the appropriate tone.


  • The graphic composition on the cover matches the content of the story, and reflects the purpose and audience of the story.


  • The colours of the image and fonts help to convey the appropriate tone of the story. (E.g., vibrant = kids, faded = historical, black and red = horror)


  • Tone is conveyed through the combination of font, image and colours on the cover.

Note, the example provided is of the fantasy genre, but highlights the elements of a book cover that you are to include (no award necessary for your cover).
