Book Cover Design

Screen Shot 2017-11-24 at 10.39.56 PMRichard has been providing book jackets and covers for many years for international publishers. Among them –  Findhorn Press, Ottawa University Press, Rockpool Publishing, Continuum International.

If you are interested in commissioning artwork for your own book, Richard will be very happy to discuss any project in more detail with you.

Standard price for a front cover artwork is £350. Prices do vary according to requirements.  A deposit is required to undertake preparatory work with half the balance being due at approval of finished artwork and half before supply of final files.

All the artwork, photography and typography in the designs you see here is Richard’s work.


“Richard is a pleasure to work with – very creative, very flexible, working fast and efficiently, with great response time. I highly recommend him!”

Thierry Bogliolo, Findhorn Press

“Richard is as talented as he is intuitive. His cover for The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write perfectly captures the essence of my book. He’s also a joy to collaborate with. I would recommend him unhesitatingly and unequivocally to anyone seeking an alchemist’s touch!   Mark David Gerson

“Brilliant, innovative, creative genius…if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind book cover, Richard is your artist.  I could not have hoped for a better outcome or a more inspired book cover.”   Edie Summers

“Not only is Richard a fantastic artist and book cover designer, he’s also a true professional. He worked quickly and intuitively, with an impressive understanding of design, to deliver what was needed. His responses to my queries were always timely and the quality of his work surpassed my expectations. It’s rare to work with someone who is talented, imaginative and genuinely passionate about achieving the best results. I’m thrilled with Richard’s work and hope to have the opportunity of working with him again in the future.”   Carol Anne Strange

      Hi Denise – thanks for getting in touch. I’ve just checked in my copy and there is a reading for the Oracle on page 78. This is very strange that you don’t have that… can you check again please and if its not there I suggest you contact Blue Angel publishing who I’m sure will help you. Here’s an email address…

      Please let me know if you can, that the problem has been resolved.
      Best wishes
