Hire the best literary fiction illustrators


Literary fiction is known for its strong themes and concepts — which is perhaps why book covers in these genres are often the work of talented book illustrators.


A good literary fiction book cover is usually simple in design, but can still capture the main theme or motif of the book. For this, you want to hire a book illustrator who understands symbolism and can evoke a strong emotion with minimal shapes.


It's a high requirement, but you've come to the right place. Reedsy can connect you with literary fiction book illustrators who have worked on titles like Fiona and Jane. All you have to do is sign up for free and send illustrators a request.
