I design Premade Horror book covers to draw readers in, capturing attention and causing them to want to know more. They often feature scary, creepy or macabre imagery and are usually dark or shadowy in color.
Horror is a genre of fiction that evokes fear and dread rather than surprise or wonder. It usually involves supernatural or brutal events in a place or situation that would be otherwise ordinary or familiar. It usually involves a male or female protagonist who is increasingly threatened or psychologically disturbed as the story progresses. Often ending with the protagonist’s destruction or destruction of the antagonist. The most common subjects of horror are the occult, the supernatural, the dark side of human nature, and the human mind.
A common design element that makes a great horror book cover is the use of dark imagery and color. Horror is often associated with a lot of black and red, which creates a sense of foreboding and tension on the cover. An image of a blood-stained knife, a dark forest, or a black cat is all effective ways to do so. The use of dark color on a horror book cover also creates a sense of mystery and intrigue, which draws in the reader. So using red or black on the cover is an effective way as well. However, other colors such as green, yellow, and blue also work well.
