Overview

I've been a graphic designer for more than 10 years and I really love books, especially the ones I've worked on!

As Ray Bradbury wrote: “A book is a loaded gun in the house next door... Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?”

I've designed a lot of different kinds of books: Artist's books, children's books, school textbooks and a lot of cooking books! You can see my covers and interiors below and feel free to get in touch if you'd like to work together!
