I’ve discussed a form for use as a thought tickler, and showed the results of one effort. I do want to stress that the Cover Art Sheet is a tool, to be used as little or as much as needed.
For an author-created cover, the production section provides more use than if using a designer cover. The designer would be the one to track the sources of the images they used. However, if there are attributions that need to be made in the book or restrictions on the images use, the Cover Art Sheet could keep that information close at hand for you.
Just because you filled out a Cover Art Sheet as a means to organize your thoughts, the detailed sheet does not necessarily have to be handed to your designer, a summary of the pertinent items could be sufficient. An example of a precise generated from a Cover Art Sheet is in the sidebar.

Drum roll please.
