"My thoughts quickly led to a suggested design that took my initial brief much further with intuitive touches that fitted the content perfectly. I was very pleased with the entire front and back. Luke's talent, knowledge and experience were apparent.”

"We are getting plenty of press coverage in Australia and Indonesia — and I have had so many comments about the cover. People just love it! And so do I — it really does stand out on the shelves and is a superb image on so many levels." Mark Heyward, author of Crazy Little Heaven

We appreciate the deep emotional connection that books can make. If made with care and attention to detail, each book deserves the chance to shine. We strive to make your book the best it can be, an honest representation of the content.
