The possibilities with books are seemingly endless, and there’s always a new one to get lost in!
If you love to read and can’t get enough books, you may have wondered what it takes to learn how to draw. If that sounds like you, we’ve got your guide to Draw A Book!
How to Draw A Book
To begin our guide to drawing a book, let’s start with a slightly elongated rectangular shape.
To make this step easier, you can use a ruler to draw a rectangle at the same angle as the book in the picture.
Once you have this guide shape, you can draw the final shape of the book. When happy with the final shape, you should erase any pencil lines you drew as a guide. The top right corner of the book has straighter edges, as you can see in the picture to Draw A Book.
After you’ve drawn the structure of your book, you can start drawing the interior details.
Using the squarer shape you left in the top right of your book, you can draw a very rounded line between the two square shapes.
This will be the top of the book pages that we will draw later. Once it looks like the image in the reference image, you can move on to the next step!
In this part of our how to draw a book guide, we’ll add some lines to represent the pages of your book.
Using a ruler is ideal for this step as it helps keep the spacing between each line even more.
You can change the spacing between lines to make the book have more or fewer pages depending on your preference!
You’re drawing a nice thick book in this tutorial, so your book design needs a cover and spine of the same thickness!
To make the book look like a thick cover, carefully draw a line around the top of the pages, you drew in the previous steps.
After drawing the thick cover, draw a curved line across the back of the book to give it a nice thick spine!
After drawing these elements, you can add some final details to your book.
You’re so close to completing your book design! Before you continue with the fun coloring phase, your book needs a few final details.
We’ve shown some details you could add to your book design, and the details we show have small circles and lines running down the book’s spine.
We suggest some details, but feel free to get creative by adding your own! It would be especially cool if you drew the cover of your favorite book on the cover of your book design!
You could even draw your favorite character from the book, along with the title, on the cover.
When you started this guide, you wanted to learn how to draw a book, and now you can see that you did it! Before your book design is complete, it needs some pretty colors to be complete!
We showed you how we colored this book design, but this is a step where you can show how creative you are!
In the previous step, I shared the idea of drawing the cover of your favorite book on the cover of your book design.
If you go with this idea, you could look at the book cover in real life and then replicate the cover colors on the cover of your book design.
Once you have decided on the colors of your book design, you are welcome to experiment with different artistic means.
I would use watercolors if coloring it as softer colors would make it look like a faded old book. What color mediums and details will you choose to complete your book design?
