Our animated book covers give you the right mix of wow and subtle
There is so much content online that only the really eye-catching gets noticed.
The movement in a good animated cover disrupts people's attention and draws them towards your book.
A great cover is the key to catching reader's attention.
You never get a second chance to make a great first impression... so, make sure your first impression really moves them!
You want meaningful animation that adds rather than detracts.
It's easy to add fluttering hair, falling flakes, wisps of smoke or dancing lights to an image...
If that's right for your book then that's fine.
98% of the time though, it's not really what you want!
Pointless movement, added 'just because you can'
Real movement, adds to the story and engages potential readers

One last point worthy of note.
Look at the animation for 'Dragon Found':
We've got lovely hair waving in the wind - easy!
But... the dragon's wing behind the hair isn't moving - much more tricky!
Look at the dragon: eyes open, jaws snap, the last dregs of smoke flurry out! Oh, have you spotted his stomach? Yeah, that's because he's breathing!
All of this was created from the original 'flat' cover image - you don't need layers for the magic to happen.
So, if all you have is a flat cover, here at Irontree,
I can still find the magic for you.
