The slideshow above shows a variety of spreads and pages from books I have both edited and laid out. From fiction to travel guides, flowing prose to organised reference material, ultra-modern texts to historical novels, and for any page size or shape, I can design inside pages from scratch or work within a publisher’s pre-set design, moving text on that crucial stage from the copy-edited Word file to professional, polished, tidy and beautiful pages that enhance an author’s work and present it in the best possible light.
Thanks to all the publishers and authors who gave permission to display pages from their work.
These are just a few of the text designs and page layouts that I have worked on over the years.
