Andrew Tennant - Designer

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Professionally typesetting and ebook authoring for large publishing houses, independent publishers and self-publishers for over 25 years.

Overview

I have typeset for some of the world's largest publishers including Bloomsbury, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Transworld, Hodder & Stoughton, Headline, Little Brown, Quercus, Verso, Polygon, Canongate, EUP, OUP and UWP.

I've typeset books as diverse as full coloured illustrated books, recipe books, children's books, academic books, joke books, cartoon books as well as straightforward novels and anthologies.

My portfolio only scratches the surface of literally thousands of books and ebooks.

I'm experienced in InDesign which I've been using for over 10 years, however, I'm also expert in many other supporting software packages.

I mainly produce EPUBs from InDesign but I'm experienced in other software packages too.

Please get in touch if you need your typesetting done quickly and professionally.
