5 incredible book covers that will inspire you to create your own

Creating a biography? You need a beautiful cover and a blurb. Here are some of our recent favourites.

When you write over 500 life stories, you learn quite a lot about life. That wisdom is captured in an incredible way through the quotes our customers have chosen to feature on the back covers of their books. Have a look at these amazing covers and 'blurbs'. What quote would you choose for your own back cover? 

Olden B. "Jay" Johnson
Navigating Through the C's of Life
 
Jay Johnson

"Let’s be frank: no one says to someone they want to encourage, “Be average!” Nor should they. Throughout history, people the world over are told and retold stories of the greats that have gone above and beyond, challenging the status quo along the way, and as a result, have made a tremendous difference. And while there’s no one-size- fits-all model for how to go big, it is also true that you won’t get there by striving to be average or settling for the bare minimum. You have to reach higher. You have to go big or go home!"

Life is an Adventure, Not a List

"When I was young, the attitude to life was “Get on with it” and I try.
I live by the motto, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” and I feel very strongly about equality – especially equal work for equal pay, because for years I didn’t get it.
I also try not to be good! " 

German Lam
The Dragon Turns to Water

German Lam
 
"I was born in the Chinese year of the dragon. Dragons are fierce and hard; they are the king of the Chinese Astrological signs. But you cannot be a dragon all of the time. Sometimes you have to be soft and flow like fluid. To know when to be which is the key to my own personal philosophy called the freestyle lifestyle."

A Boy's Journey

"A friend came to pick me up and drive me to his place in Islamabad, where I would have to go into hiding until my family worked out how to get me out of the country. There was no time to say goodbye to my family properly, or to collect up my precious medical books. I stuffed a couple of items of clothing into a bag and left the house. From now on I was on my own, and I was running for my life."  
 
Robert James 
The American Success Story of a Technically Cockney Lad
 
robert James
 
"In 1990, when I was 65, I retired from full-time work and had no real idea of what I was going to do other than enjoy myself and spend more time with my children. When I retired from the packaging business, I had operations in the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, and four factories in the U.S. But even though I retired, I started four more companies, one of which was very successful. It is important to me to keep my brain active, no matter what age I am. If you don’t keep the mind going ...well, I do not want to find out what would happen."
