We can answer any question about book cover design and interior page layout in Quark Xpress or Adobe InDesign. Also general questions about typography, such as choosing the right font, kerning, tracking, and general typographic quality issues in book publishing.
We have designed thousands of books on every subject imaginable. We're currently active in the self-publishing community and hear the struggles that people have attempting to do the job themselves without the proper training or experience. All too often, the job they produce is not up to professional standards, and as a result, what may be a very good book is rejected by book reviewers and retailers because of the presentation. So, we're here to answer questions to help the do-it-yourselfers approach acceptable quality and determine what they should do themselves and what they should not attempt to do if they want to succeed in the brutal book marketplace.
Arizona Book Publishing Association
Arizona Book Publishing Association newsletters; numerous self-publishing websites have carried my tips and articles for self-publishers.
Associate's degree in Commercial Art more years ago than I care to admit, and 35 years of attendance in the school of hard knocks.
Multiple Glyph and IPPY awards for book cover and interior design. Dozens of books we have designed have won "Best Book" in these competitions as well. Not they we are taking credit for the content, of course, but the presentation is all important in book marketing.
We work for large publishers as well as first-time self-publishers.
