AFFORDABLE and CREATIVE BOOKMAKING

PORTFOLIO OF PROJECTS

 

THE CREATION OF ANY BOOK IS HARD WORK, TIME-CONSUMING BUT SATISFYING WHEN SEEING THE FINAL PRODUCT. MILLIONS OF THOUGHTS, IMAGES AND INTENSE SOUL-SEARCHING MAY HAVE GONE INTO THESE WORKS BUT FINALLY THE TIME COMES TO MAKE ALL THIS WORK A REALITY.

 

EACH OF THE BOOKS IN OUR PORTFOLIO HAS BEEN A LABOR OF LOVE, BY BOTH THE AUTHOR, AND US AS THEIR CREATIVE PARTNER AND FACILITATOR. THESE BOOKS ARE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL IN CONTENT AND DESIGN; THE FINAL PRODUCT IS A COMBINATION OF THE WISHES OF THE AUTHOR ALONG WITH OUR ABILITIES. BECAUSE OF OUR EXPERIENCE, WE ARE UNLIKE OTHER SELF-PUBLISHING COMPANIES WHO PROVIDE COOKIE CUTTER FORMATS AND RESULT IN SIMILARITIES FROM ONE BOOK TO THE NEXT. EACH BOOK WE WORK ON IS UNIQUE. OUR CREATIVE CONCEPT IS THAT THE READER MUST FEEL THOSE FEELINGS THE AUTHOR INTENDED TO CONVEY. THIS IS ACHIEVED BY OUR INNATE DESIGN SENSE AS WE LIVE THROUGH EACH BOOK, TRAVELLING DOWN A SIMILAR ROAD AS THE AUTHOR HAS. IN DOING SO, EVERY DESIGN ELEMENT SELECTED EFFECTIVELY ENHANCES WHATEVER THE AUTHOR HAS PUT TO PRINT.

 

THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS IS THAT WE DO NOT COLLECT ANY ROYALTIES OR TAKE A PERCENTAGE OF YOUR SALES. IF THE AUTHOR DECIDES TO MARKET AND SELL HIS OR HER BOOK, ALL PROFITS GO STRAIGHT BACK TO THEM. PERIOD.

 

EACH BOOK IS A JOURNEY, A STORY TOLD THROUGH THE EYES AND HEART OF EACH AUTHOR, WHETHER THROUGH TEXT OR PHOTOGRAPHY. THE CHALLENGE WE WILLINGLY UNDERTAKE IS TO CREATE A FINISHED PRODUCT THAT IS A PLEASING AND COHESIVE WORK THAT REFLECTS THE INTENTIONS OF EACH AUTHOR. HERE ARE SOME SAMPLES OF PAST PROJECTS.
