Transcript of Book Jacket

Book Jackets: Accelerated English IB's Significant Task and Q4 Research Project Project Overview: How many times have you heard the saying,
"Don't judge a book by its cover,"?

While it may not be a good idea to base all of our thoughts of who a person or group might be on outward appearances, you can really learn a lot about a piece of literature by looking at a book cover or "jacket". The Cover This portion of the book jacket features the title, author's name, and significant images that visually represent the major concepts of the book; may also include a tagline. The Back This portion of the book jacket usually features a teaser/synopsis of the book if it is paperback; if it is a hardcover, this portion may feature significant quotations from the book OR reviews. Teaser:

Synopsis: a brief overview of the major book events
(not including the ending) a short, high-interest preview of the book
(primarily focused on generating interest) Tagline: One sentence "hook" for the book;
a catchy phrase or brief quotation.

This may apear on the front OR back. The Spine This portion of the cover commonly includes the title, author name, and publisher. Inside Back Flap Inside Front Flap This portion of the book jacket features biographical information on the author; the title "about the author", other works by the author, and a picture of the writer are commonly provided here. The inside front flap may include a synopsis if the book is hardcover, and it may also include quotations from the book or literary reviews.
