Rosie Edwards – Designer

Experienced designer specialising in book cover design, layout, internal page typesetting for narratives and full colour travel guidebooks


I am an experienced book designer with strong layout and typography skills and a meticulous attention to detail.

Over the last twenty years, I have completed a variety of printed books.

While at Vertebrate Publishing, I laid out a wealth of guidebooks, biographies, narratives and travel guides. This included cover design, series branding, internal page design and layout that was sympathetic to the existing cover, plus artworking full-colour photographic guidebooks using templates to include information such as elevation and route profiles and mapping. I have also extensive experience typesetting complex narratives featuring footnotes, endnotes, indexes and boxed-out sections.

During my time at the fiction imprint of Games Workshop, I designed covers, series branding, special edition art books and typeset internal pages for their science fiction and fantasy ranges.

I am an approachable person with a positive, flexible attitude and am extremely organised. I am now looking to combine my experience and creativity to be able to work with new people on exciting projects through Reedsy, so please drop me a message if you think I might be able to help you with your book!
