Welcome, fellow writer.

Just like you, I feel a deep urge to express myself. To create more beauty in the world.

The way writing and design come together in a book is unlike anything else.

Which is why I adore creating books. Not just designing books. Or typesetting books.

I mean creating beautiful printed books.

I’m all for digital books (they have many advantages) but you just can’t beat holding an actual-3D-reality-tangible book in your hands. Feeling the texture of it. Taking in the scent of it. Isn’t it just wonderful? There’s nothing quite like it.

What’s also rather wonderful is being a part of getting someone’s passion out into the world, and making sure the visuals match that passion.

Nothing (well, not much) saddens me more than seeing someone spending years – sometimes decades – perfecting their manuscript, which is based on their life’s work, their purpose, and then they don’t invest (or can’t invest) in making it look as professional as the content is.

Now, I’m not going to bullshit you – this is costly. You will either spend time or money on this process. But it is so worth it! I’m always creating more free and low cost resources for authors – you can find those on the Resources page. If there’s something you need or want and it’s not there, let me know!

Above are some of the books I’ve had the pleasure of contributing to. For some, I only designed the cover; for some, only the inner pages. For others, I was involved in the whole book; designing the layout, typesetting, formatting, and cover design. I’ve also drawn maps and created custom icons.

What I love is that they are all very different. Individual; like the author. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach – I tune into each book project and feel into the energy of it. That then translates into visuals. It’s a beautiful co-creation.

“The entire process of determining the design and the fonts was really smooth and easy, and Esther added some beautiful creative touches to it by designing custom icons for each type of tree. I absolutely loved the final product.”
