Book Design

Helping Authors and Self-Publishers

Cover Design, Layout and Typesetting

Book design necessarily goes beyond cover design—my book design packages include the graphic design of the front cover, back cover and spine, as well as the layout and typographic design of each interior page.

A book designer ensures that every detail of your book is professionally produced so readers can focus on what you have to say.

Couldn’t I just do it myself? Sure. You can submit your manuscript to the publisher and call it done. But as easy as it is to set type, the finer points of cover design and typography are often overlooked. I can help take your passion project from rough manuscript to professionally printed book or e-book.
