Service Description

I have been a graphic designer since 1976, mainly working for publishers of varying products; textbooks, maps/guides, display ads, magazines, yellow pages, and most entertaining were the Preventive Maintenance comic books for the US Army!
My computer training started in 1994, and I discovered my love of book design in 1996.

Page & Book Design is my passion.
I WILL HONOR YOUR HARD WORK BY RESPECTING YOUR
MANUSCRIPT AND DESIGNING A BEAUTIFUL AND
PROFESSIONAL BOOK.

“Rosie, you are amazing, you accomplished everything I asked for, in such a small amount of time. Thank you for the amazing cover, and formatting my book perfectly!”
--Amber Walter

“Rosamond is fantastic. The cover and interior design was delivered within the time frame agreed and the end result was beyond expectations. I recommend her highly! ”
--WeightlossCoach

“I could not have asked for a more perfect and professional artist to work with for the interior and cover design of my book. Thank you again, Rosie!”
— nmbull24

“Rosie did a great job. She really understands the process of producing a book cover and, especially for self published authors, gives an end-product that looks like it was done by one of the major publishing houses. I highly recommend her and would use her services again.”
