The skills and knowledge base of book production is pretty broad. It includes understanding of the technical aspects of print, but also requires scheduling, cost management and an array of other project management capabilities.
Whether its print management or something bigger I’ll do a thorough planning stage at the outset and we’ll agree what we’re aiming for. I’ll pull together all the figures so you know exactly what all this will cost and the margin you can expect to make. I’ll then make the process painless, leading you through an agreed timeline.
Essentially I offer a a high quality product, cost-effective purchasing and a smooth running project. Even if you have some level of experience with print and publishing without the right guidance its easy to spend a lot more than you need to, or to make costly mistakes.
Particularly in colour illustrated work there are lots of pitfalls where, without some guidance, you can easily expect some additional stress and unplanned cost.
Knowledge of suppliers, materials and manufacturing processes is essential to developing the right specification and approach for any print project, so you don’t waste time, effort and money.
I offer consultancy and management for self-publishers, groups or businesses needing print production or publishing advice, ranging from coaching on project start-ups through to a fully-managed service. I provide expertise and contacts in all aspects of book publishing but with particular specialism in managing the practicalities and technicalities of getting from content creation through to delivery of finished copies.
I have a specialism in photography books, especially concerned with topics of wildlife and nature conservation, and in general where high quality colour management of photography is required.

In 1909 the millionaire French banker and philanthropist Albert Kahn embarked on an ambitious project to create a colour photographic record of, and for, the peoples of the world. This book and the BBC TV series it accompanies are bringing these pictures to a mass audience and putting colour into what we tend to think of as a monochrome age.
