Book Typographers for hire in Cambridge

Font, as it turns out, is everything on a book cover. It’s a reader’s first impression of a book. On University of Cambridge’s campus, especially, where folks do judge a book by its cover, these decisions matter. Literally: the font you use on a book cover should reflect the genre you write in. Experienced book typographers for hire in Cambridge know the contemporary designs in vogue for each and every literary niche. For example, did you know that Trajan Pro and Cinzel might just make or break your fantasy book cover?

But it goes beyond front and back matters, of course: typographers can help with the inside of a manuscript — what’s called a book’s interior design — and make it look absolutely stunning! The choice of font, line spacing, margins, as well as photography and illustration placement affects the user experience of your book. Some say that the best typographers to hire are those who aren’t too flashy: they work in mysterious ways. That is, their talent is supporting the work of the author’s sentences, instead of showing off fancy design skills. The beautiful interior design of a book is almost a subliminal message: it’s so lovely that we can easily get lost inside it (in the very best way).

If you have any image whatsoever in your ebook, it’s best to hire a typographer than spend hours fussing. They’ll know how to get it picture-perfect — and centered — in every possible device and zoom. And if you’re searching for the best book typographers for hire in Cambridge and around the world, you don’t need to look any further than Reedsy. We have the top book typographers in the business on our marketplace, including former Big 5 designers who have worked on countless bestselling books.
