Tailor Made Books

We can handle every stage of book development from initial concept and presentation to finished books delivered to warehouse. Or we can do only some stages of book creation. But however our clients choose to work, we always stick to agreed budgets and schedules and work closely with them at every stage.

We offer the following services:

  • Developing a concept through synopsis and design
  • Commissioning and/or liaising with authors
  • Picture research and buying reproduction rights
  • Commissioning photography, artwork and maps
  • All stages of design
  • All states of editing
  • Pre-production (colour separations, proofs etc)
  • Production (printing and binding, to finished copies)

Children's Books

Childrens Books

We work closely with children's book writers and illustrators to amuse, intrigue and inform children (particularly 8-12 year-olds). Examples below include: a skeleton striking an unusually relaxed pose, and children themselves always dominating the words and pictures of the book.

Series & Sets

Series & Sets

The ten major series we have produced — at the rate of a volume every month or two — have made us masters of planning, systems and consistency. Just as important is the need for constant creativity, ensuring that every picture tells a story and every sentence paints a picture.
