Specialist books

A summary

Not every self-published book is a novel, and the sheer diversity of titles on which our clients ask us to work is necessarily accompanied by an extensive range of book specifications with specialist binding, paper stocks, custom sizes and finishes. From cookery books and portfolios to coffee table books, reference books, manuals and more, our print teams and designers are happiest when working on unusual books which take independent publishing in new and exciting directions.

A little deeper

We love producing novels, and a significant proportion of our clients are amazingly talented story-tellers, however, we also work with authors who are interested in self-publishing more unusual titles. Our vast experience in traditional publishing means that there is nothing we don’t know about producing titles which are bespoke, unique and beautiful.

A ‘specialist book’ might be described as any title which falls outside of the spectrum of the ‘standard’ specification of novels. Often these will be non-fiction, since informational titles typically require a bespoke design and print to accommodate their particular content. Cookbooks, portfolios, photography books, memoirs, coffee table books etc. are all items which we supply to our clients and each one is a work of art.

If you are a professional with visual or informational content which could be made into a book, then creating a specialist publication could be exactly what you need to showcase your talents and demonstrate the world that you are the authority in your field. Perhaps you are an architect, poet, photographer or landscape gardener; whatever your profession, a book which beautifully presents your expertise and experience is the perfect sales piece to pass to your best prospects, and is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of self-promotion in professional industries.
