I have been sharing information on various resources for book covers lately, for example with my posts on Free Transparent Logos and Images and A Free Mockup Book Cover Maker. I recently came across a website which has some great material for authors of fantasy, historical romance, and anything to do with period settings. The aptly called Period Images website specializes in book covers featuring anything from cowboys to pirates and ancient soldiers.
Since it’s geared up toward Indie authors, the artwork is licensed for use in both ebook and print book, including promotional materials, and is only sold once. It comes in the perfect dimensions for your book cover and can answer that dreadful question, “where am I going to find a photo of a Scottish brute wielding a claymore?”
Unfortunately, it’s not free. It is, however, very decently priced, with most of the art going for around $95. As I said, this covers everything, from ebook to print and promos.
If you are a genre author and need a stunning book cover, Period Images is well worth checking out (and no, I’m in no way affiliated with them; I just loved their work)!
