Book Cover Design

Richard has been providing covers for many years for international publishers. Among them –  Findhorn Press, Ottawa University Press, Rockpool Publishing, Continuum International.

He also has a growing number of authors requesting his services for their own work. If indeed you do require artwork, Richard will be very happy to discuss any project in more detail with you. Calligraphic titles can also be commissioned either as stand alone artwork or as an element of cover artwork. Richard likes to keep a very friendly approach and will try to work with your ideas as much as possible.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.
