The text will be edited using the track change facility in ms-office word and highlighted text will be returned for your approval. From £300 Proof Reading – A complete proof read will then be made making the text and layout pre publication ready. £350 Book Cover The purpose of a book cover (and I think it works for lots of products) Is the purpose of the cover to sell books, to accurately describe what's in the book, or to tee up the reader so the book has maximum impact? The third. It's the third because if the book has maximum impact, then word of mouth is created, and word of mouth is what sells your product, not the cover. Tactically, the cover sells the back cover, the back cover sells the flap and by then you've sold the book. If those steps end up selling a book that the purchaser doesn't like, game over. So you have to be consistent all the way through and end up creating a conversation after the purchase. Books are better at creating conversations than most products (when was the last time you talked about a pool cue), but there's lots of opportunity here, no matter what you make. S Some ways that a book cover can accomplish its mission: I Iconic (because iconic items tend to signal 'important') Noticeable across the room (you see that lots of other people own it, thus making it l likely that you'll want to know why) Sophisticated (because this helps reinforce that the ideas inside are worthy of your t time) O Original (why bother reading a book you already know) C Clever Funny
  4. 4. Generic (reminding you of a genre or another book you liked, not generic as in boring) M-Y Books will interpret and design a commercial and genre specific book cover. We engage a number of designers and normally work from an initial offer of three proof designs. The cover design should be market sensitive whilst offering a striking image that works at thumbnail size on the Internet. From £450 Usa of original illustrations by prior arrangement. Typesetting the style of typesetting, fonts, margins and headings will then need to be chosen. Sample pages from a variety of sources will be made available to aid the final decision on style. Design concepts relating to the printing of the book, for example the weight and type of paper, back cover copy or text , pricing, author biography from £300 Book data and registration Essential to successful publication is the quality of the attendant descriptions, key words and other information such as BICC categorisation.
