Book Interior Design

Interior Book Design Services for Self-Publishers

Recto, Verso, Folio, Running Header...what?

  • Designing a book involves learning a new language – one that we’re fluent in.
    • A proper book is more than uploading a Word file. Care needs to be taken that the book design does not interfere with readability.
    • How does book design happen at the major publishing houses?
    • A proper book is more than uploading a Word file. Care needs to be taken that the book design does not interfere with readability.
    • Readers notice if a book design does not flow, or if they have to squint to read it.
    • Book design is often overlooked or is not a point of concern for self-publishing authors; however, its impact is far reaching, especially when you consider it is also one of the most time consuming parts of creating a book. You want it to be great.
    • How does book design happen at the major publishing houses?
      • It all starts with the right software, and then the designer goes to work. For the best results, designers like to have the cover completed first so the interior matches.
      • Font, spacing, and placement are all part of this design process. The devil is in the details.
      • We use the same process as the big guys – giving you a polished and professional interior!

What Is Typesetting In Book Design?

  • Typesetting is where every word is placed on a page.
    • We know what fonts are specifically designed for books and will look great on the page.
    • Avoiding roomy margins and having a wide enough middle spacing is also vital to readability.

We Have a Proven Quality Process for Book Design.

  • We start with design specs and make sure every page follows the guidelines, and confirm this with quality checks as rigorous as those used by the big publishers – if not more so.
    • Here is a little bit of what goes on after the book is complete:
    • Did you know? We have a 30+ point checklist for each and every page of your book. Which means we are spending 10 minutes or move reviewing every page.
    • For example:
      • Is the hyphenation checked?
      • Is the total page count divisible by 2?
      • Have the styles been checked with the design cop

The Final Check

  • Since book design is such a lengthy process, mistakes can be made. Which is why we compare the final manuscript to the final pages to make sure everything is just how you want it to be.
  • You get to read over the final book for approval. Many publishers no longer allow this! But of course you know your book better than anyone, which means you can spot an opportunity or error in your final manuscript better than anyone. Which means you can request changes before the final book is produced.
