Hello I'm Bailey, 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

Bailey McGinn did a marvelous job of reading my mind and turning my vague suggestions into a fantastic cover. She was responsive, paid close attention, and met the schedule. She was also a delight to work with—creative and enthusiastic. My experience working with her was even better than I had hoped.

Bailey has been really great to work with! This is my first time publishing, and I really wasn't sure what I wanted, but Bailey was great helping me clarify my vision and I love the finished product. I look forward to working with Bailey on the rest of the books on my series.

It was a joy working with Bailey! She was so helpful and knowledgeable about creating a book cover as well as many other aspects of the self-publishing process. She worked with me to ensure I would be happy with the final product - and I love it!

Once again, Bailey did a fabulous job with the cover of my book. She perfectly captured the setting, the characters, and the feeling of the story. Not only does it fit in with the "brand" I've established for my previous series of romantic comedies, it stands out as the first book in a new series.
