Creating a photograph for a book cover can be very simple as I know from experience – more than just one time. Simply chose a shot from whatever you have in the archive and go to print.
But it can also be very difficult – and again this is said from experience. If you have a motive in your imagination but cannot give anyone an example of how it would look like, it can be kind of difficult to find your way. But it certainly helps to have a patient and ambitious publisher around as well as a routined photographer.
