A blank book cover allows you to take a flat image of a book and create a realistic-looking 3D image .

Whether your book is already printed, in the editing stage or just an ebook, there are many reasons you might need a blank book cover. You might have hundreds of printed books in your basement, without a single decent product shot to advertise your work on websites. Or maybe you are just weeks away from having hard copies at your door, and you want to go ahead and show potential readers how great your book looks to start collecting pre-orders. Or even more commonly, you could have a digital product that you would like to seem tangible and worth someone’s hard-earned money.

A blank book cover allows you to do all of this easily, and there are several methods you could use to develop your 3D mock-up. We will talk about your options and give you plenty of products to choose from below.
