Overview

I am an experienced book designer who cares deeply about type. I care about the difference between an en-dash and an em-dash and the spacing of ellipses. I care about consistency and continuity in typography. Choosing the appropriate typefaces for a book is perhaps my favorite part of my job. The typography and layout of a book’s interior is a clear way to distinguish between a professionally designed book and a thrown-together one. My clients regularly thank me for my speed and accuracy. If there are editorial changes to be made after your book is typeset, you can be assured I will handle them carefully and accurately. Among others, I have designed books for Doubleday, McGraw-Hill, Rizzoli, Oxford University Press, Yale University Press, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have experience setting type in multiple languages, from Spanish and French to Chinese and Arabic. I am also, quelle surprise, an avid reader. Literary and dystopian fiction are my favorite genres.
