Following is a sampling of books and other documentation I’ve designed, with links to where they can be purchased, if available.
For self-publishing author, Mike Cooney (and his family), I supported his first book project from copyediting to proofreading, and I also did my first cover (!) and interior design (click on the cover spread to go to a PDF of Chapter 2 to see the interior). Whew! Mike was a great collaborator on this, and thanks to his son, Harrison, I had a great photo to build the cover with. I only had to do some fade effect and wording, etc. (which is good, because cover art from scratch is way beyond me).
To take a look at the book in its native environment (on Amazon.com), go here. Buying it is a great idea, especially if you are thinking about traveling in Latin America, and Mike is a great writer with an awesome sense of humor that will entertain you through every page.
Ocular Anatomy and Physiology, 22nd Edition
For several years, now, I’ve been providing the index for Jan Bergmanson et. al’s book. It was originally served up to me as a Word file, which is difficult to keep stable in terms of page flow, especially with the plethora of images that Dr. Bergmanson uses in this book. I convinced him first of all to import the file into InDesign so that page flow could be stabilized by one of Dr. B’s graduate students for accurate indexing. After I purchased InDesign myself and began learning how to use it, I proposed last year that I give the book’s interior a face-lift and improve readability with a more professional layout.
So, here are before and after pictures for a chapter opener page (for a look at an entire new chapter with images, check out the PDF here) to give you an idea of the improved readability:
