Reese Dante | Book Cover Designer & Artist

Bringing your story to life…in a picture


People say, “don’t judge a book by its cover“, but we all do it. If the cover doesn’t spark an interest, we tend to assume the story will fall short as well.  But if the book cover grabs your attention, there’s a greater likelihood you’ll take a peek.  We, as readers do it, why would you expect your customers to be different?

Regardless of whether your book will be offered as a free read or sold for $100, you’ve taken the time to write it and you should be proud to show it off with cover art that complements your story. And, considering a book cover design is one of the most important marketing tools an author can have to generate sales, it is imperative to capture the essence of the story, its mood, and characters in an eye-catching cover.

When you work with me, you’re in a one-on-one relationship.  I am not part of a large design company nor will I hand your project off to someone else. I see this as a mutually beneficial partnership.  You want a great design for your story and I want you to come back to me for your next book cover design project.

I design covers because I enjoy bringing a story to life in a picture. I welcome you to browse my site and feel free to contact me with any questions or project needs.


With over one thousand book cover designs published since 2009, there are many samples available for preview – unfortunately, too many to display all of them here. I invite you to take a peek at the online portfolio to view a small sampling of digital and print book cover designs.

Cover art is the first visual a readers have for your story…but it certainly isn’t the only one. Aside from cover art design, I also offer a host of other services to help you publish your book and make a great impression.
