What is INABC?

A Directory. A Resource. A Celebration.

Welcome to the premier directory of book cover designers in the English-speaking world. This site celebrates the work of dedicated, full-time, and freelance book cover designers who are consistently adding extraordinary work to adult, trade book genres.

If you want advice on how to find the right designer for your unique project, read this post first. Please remember to contact designers individually and do not email the INABC website with hopes of speaking with a specific designer.

If you’re self-publishing and you want even more help finding a cover designer, read this post and then visit the Jobs Board.

Editors: So, you asked your author, “Do you want a typographic cover or a photographic one?” and they’re confused by the question. Tell them to toggle between “Typographic” and “Photographic” under the category “Style.” That should clear things up.

Readers: Have you ever thought, “What was the name of that black book from a few years ago that had a lion walking across it?” Turn on the filters for “animal” and “black.” Voila!  

Students: Interested in the book cover design world? Get inspired! Follow your favorite designers on their individual Instagram accounts. Be sure to peruse the blog and visit the Resources page for more helpful information.

Who built this site:

My name is Zoe and this site is my love letter to striking book covers and to my colleagues who create them. I spent years dreaming about some version of this project before I finally brought it to life. 

Over the years, if I turned down a project I would often get asked, “Who would you recommend instead? Where should I look to find a designer?” And although I could instantly think of 30 names to recommend, this list did not exist outside of my head. This happened enough times that I decided the internet was missing one, central directory featuring my colleagues and heroes. I wanted a curated list of industry pros that I would feel confident sending again and again. The talented names listed here are the ones who regularly knock my socks off.

If you visit this website often and want to show your support, you can buy me a latte. Thank you!
