About This Class

In this class I will show you how to create a book cover, and a wraparound cover at that, using CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. You can benefit of this class even if you use InDesign by learning the thinking and procedure. But even more of course if you just like myself use CorelDRAW Graphics Suite. From farm to table, from start to final printable PDF. We will look at the art itself, the creation of the actual template and how to use fonts and text in creating our final layout.
