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

Chick Lit

Bailey was over-the-moon fantastic. She was collaborative, punctual, and I couldn't imagine bringing my book to life without her!

This is my second time working with Bailey on a cover and, once again, I'm very impressed with the quality of her work. Not only did she create a cover that captured the tone and feel of my book, but it also matches up perfectly with Book 1 in my series. Her design skills have definitely helped elevate my book in a crowded market.

Bailey was so incredibly thorough and easy to communicate with. She made the entire process feel easy and seamless, delivering the perfect cover that I didn't I know I needed! I loved being able to hand over the idea and let her do her magic! Work with Bailey! You will not regret it!
