The rate for book design can vary a lot from project to project. The base rates below will give you an idea, but please note that they are just a starting point. The best way to find out what your price will be is to give me more details about your book. I’ll be happy to send you a questionnaire to fill in, so I can analyse it and give you a custom quote. Feel free to ask me about your specific needs, even if you don’t see them listed below.

I request 50% of the quoted price as down payment upon signing the contract. Discounts are available if you order more services.
