Hello I'm Bailey McGinn, a Canadian book designer specialising in illustration based out of Paris, France.

As a book designer I have had the opportunity (and distinct pleasure) of working across many styles. Each book demands a unique treatment considering not only genre conventions but the author's voice, audience expectations, themes and motifs, and current design trends. Keeping this in mind, my objective is simple: client satisfaction and quality production.

I love colour, illustration, wacky typography, minimalism and hand-lettering which is a great fit for romance novels, children's books, cozy mysteries, non-fiction, and contemporary novels.

I hold degrees in both graphic design and English Literature. I am a visual storyteller, illustrator, and meticulous typographer. I help authors bring their vision to life, and I’m ready to help you!


 I charge a rate of €500. I’m open to a payment plan if you prefer.

 Your package includes:

-ebook cover design print cover design based on template of your distribution service/s illustration services
-unlimited revisions (I really want you to be happy with the end result and will work until we get it right!)
-3D book mockups for marketing

To anyone who is considering Bailey for cover design, I unequivocally recommend her services. I’m in love with the work that she produced, and you’re going to be as well. After reviewing some of her past designs, I knew ahead of time that I would likely be a satisfied customer. Still, the euphoria of seeing a glowing book cover come to life is something that I wasn’t expecting to be so intense....

Bailey has been amazing to work with! Not only is her artwork beautiful, but she has gone above and beyond to bring all aspects of the cover to life! She put so much care and consideration into the illustration and lettering. The cover she made for my book looks leagues better than so many designs put out by major publishing houses. I couldn't be happier with her services and I'm planning to...
