Beautiful book design is not just the domain of big publishers. Independent authors can benefit from great design too, and within budget. When your book is the best it can be, you remove obstacles to its success.
"It's absolutely stunning — you are the BEST! Colours, images, fonts, mood, the use of frontispiece — it's just perfect." Sam Grosser, author of The King James Men

"It can be a lucky dip when seeking expert help for a job. Is he or she a good plumber, physio, birthday cake maker? As it was when I needed a cover designer for my humorous novel Local Rag Hero. I figured a funny book would need a special touch. A little research led me to Luke Harris of Working Type Studios. My ‘dip’ was indeed lucky. Luke quickly saw the treatment my book needed. My thoughts quickly led to a suggested design that took my initial brief much further with intuitive touches that fitted the content perfectly. My mention in passing of a burning pub became a key part of the design. I was very pleased with the entire front and back. A book to be proud of before I open it. Luke's talent, knowledge and experience were apparent throughout our text discussions. I am pleased to take Luke out of the ‘dip’ category for anyone seeking a book cover designer in future. No luck needed here." Les Pobjie, author of Local Rag Hero.
