Behind The Scenes: The Making of the Cover of Good Luck, Ivy!

Once again, all this information can apply to any book at all, but in Oprah’s show, they used the book, Good Luck, Ivy! American Girl puts a lot of work into a cover, even though we all know to never judge a book by its cover. First, American Girl hires girls to model out the book cover. They take loads of pictures, so it will be easier for the artist. The next step is when the artist produces a sketch. Finally, the artist makes an oil painting and that becomes the cover of the book. What hard work! Now we know why it takes a long time for a book to come out!
