A Gallery of Angel Leya’s Book Cover Designs

Books have always been a love of mine, but so has art.

Thankfully, even the written word needs visual representation from time to time.

Book cover designs are the perfect meld of story and imagery, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with a couple of authors in creating their book covers, as well as creating my own.

I’ll try to keep this page up to date with all the latest covers as the books become available.

If you’re interested in having me design covers for you, feel free to reach out via the contact page.

Redemption’s Beacon by Sandy Stuckless

Redemption's Beacon by Sandy Stuckless

You really should read this short story by Sandy Stuckless if you get a chance. When I read it, I just had to make a cover for him. It was featured in the 10MinuteNovelists newsletter, and later was picked up by the Toronto Prose Mill.

Laine Cunningham

I love designing covers for Laine. She has a great sense of style and her books cover a variety of topics and genres. Plus, she’s great to work with. Check out some of these titles:

Novels by Laine Cunningham: Reparation, The Family Made of Dust, Beloved | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

These are Laine’s novels. I love how the covers reflect the gritty nature of her stories.

Her novels include: Reparation, The Family Made of Dust, and Beloved.

During the 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, a judge said this about the cover of Reparation: “Reparation presents with a dark, dramatic photo cover art design. I get the tone of the book from the very first glance.”

Wisdom series by Laine Cunningham: The Wisdom of Babies, The Wisdom of Weddings, The Wisdom of Puppies | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

The Wisdom books are full of meaningful life lessons, all based around a theme. Each book features beautiful pictures and original sayings about some of your favorite subjects.

This series includes: The Wisdom of Babies, The Wisdom of Weddings, and The Wisdom of Puppies.

Zen series by Laine Cunningham: The Zen of Dogs, The Zen of Chocolate, The Zen of Travel, The Zen of Gardening, Zen in the Stable | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

The Beautiful Book series by Laine Cunningham: The Beautiful Book for Dream Seekers, The Beautiful Book for Women, The Beautiful Book for Lovers, The Beautiful Book of Questions, The Beautiful Book for Rebels | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

The Beautiful Book series is one of my favorites. I just love these beautiful covers and colors. The interiors are black and white for a more economic price, but the font choices and borders means they’re no less beautiful.

This series includes: The Beautiful Book for Dream Seekers, The Beautiful Book for Women, The Beautiful Book for Lovers, The Beautiful Book of Questions, and The Beautiful Book for Rebels.

The Travel Photo Art series by Laine Cunningham: Bikes of Berlin, Panoramas of Portugal, Ruins of Rome 2, Ruins of Rome 1, Ruins of Rome Journal | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

The Travel Photo Art series by Laine Cunningham: Ancients of Assisi 2, Ancients of Assisi 1, Necropolises of New Orleans 1, Necropolises of New Orleans 2, Necropolises of New Orleans Journal | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

The Travel Photo Art series are a collection of photos gathered on Laine’s many journeys, paired with thoughtful titles. Some of the collections were large enough to warrant two books, in which I split photos (which I used whole for the accompanying journal) to create the two covers. (It’s worthwhile to note that some of the photos are not in order as book 1 on the left and book 2 on the right, because I wanted the first book in the series to have the more stunning photo.)

This series includes: Bikes of Berlin, Panoramas of Portugal, Ruins of Rome II, Ruins of Rome I, Ruins of Rome Journal, Ancients of Assisi II, Ancients of Assisi I, Necropolises of New Orleans I, Necropolises of New Orleans II, and Necropolises of New Orleans Journal.

Other nonfiction by Laine Cunningham: Writing While Female or Black or Gay, On the Wallaby Track, Woman Alone | Cover design by Angel Leya | www.angeleya.com

And Laine does all sorts of books, reaching into her vast experience with things such as the publishing industry and her extensive travels in Australia.

Some of her nonfiction titles include: Writing While Female or Black or Gay, On the Wallaby Track, and Woman Alone.

During the 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, a judge said this about the cover of Woman Alone: “I liked the choice of font for the book cover’s title and chapter headings. The cover, with its lone figure standing in a remote copper-colored landscape, invites the prospective buyer to pick up the book.” The judge gave the cover a rating of 5 out of 5.
