Back Cover Book Endorsement Examples

by CJ McDaniel // October 9  

Back cover endorsements are a valuable part of your book’s design.  Endorsements made by reputable entities and authority figures within your subject area can help boost sales.  Endorsements provide a seal of approval, or testimonial about your book that convince potential buyers that the book is a worthwhile purchase, and an interesting read. There’s a lot of back cover endorsement examples that can inspire you and help you create one for your book that will surely standout.

Just like a book’s cover works to provide the book with an impactful visual persona, character, and help readers to visualize scenes and ideas from the book’s story, a back cover endorsement works to give a book a sense of credibility.  In fact, many readers look for a book’s endorsement before making the decision to purchase the books.

Laying out back cover endorsements should be done in a strategic way that compels a potential reader to want to explore the contents of the book, and ultimately purchase it to indulge in the interesting content within.  Back cover endorsements can also act as a call to action that entices readers to dive into the book.

By strategically laying out back cover endorsements, you can increase the value of your book and boost sales.  People trust the endorsements of authority figures within your subject area, and can even purchase your book based on these endorsements alone.

Below are ten examples of book back covers with well-designed endorsements.
