Book Design

You have an idea for a book or have written a book, but how do you get it produced? Studio Theano can turn your Word document or sketches into a book ready to be published – either by yourself on Amazon Create Space or in a form that you can confidently present to publishers.

How it Works:

  • Email me at julie@touch-paper.co.uk  or call on t: 01475 272497 m: 07552 939899 to discuss your project. This might include formatting a fiction text, a book cover design or non-fiction page layouts and images.
  • It helps if you supply examples of the style of book you are aiming for along with your text and image requirements.
  • Size of the book and publishing destination is agreed in order to set the book up with the correct print specifications.
  • I will supply 3 page layout designs and/or 3 book cover designs.
  • One or a combination of the designs can be developed with 3 sets of revisions until a final layout is agreed upon.
  • The manuscript should be proofread and corrected before supplying for final typesetting/formatting.
  • You will receive a first proof. Any final typos should be corrected on this version.
  • The final book is supplied as a print ready pdf ready for uploading to Amazon Create Space or to present to a publisher.

Costs:

Quotes are based on length of text, complexity of design, images/illustration requirements and/or book cover design.

Example costs:
  • Fiction book of 300 pages with straightforward layout and no interior images: £450
    This would include first proof and one round of revisions and final print ready pdf.
  • Book cover design using stock imagery: £250
    This would include 3 initial designs and 3 sets of revisions and final print ready pdf.
  • Non-fiction books with more complex layouts start at £800.
    Costs for stock photos or illustration will be quoted on top of this.
