10 things you need to know about book design
AND the 10 most common mistakes made in self-publishing
and how to avoid them

Book Design Ltd is a design studio with a passion for books. Now based in Birkenhead, on Auckland’s North Shore, Book Design has been designing and producing books for 20 years. We work with the mainstream publishers in New Zealand, and have helped an increasing number of self-publishers get their work into print or online as an ebook.

We are presenting a workshop on Saturday 1st March
from 10am–4pm, in our Birkenhead studio

Aimed at self-publishers, indie writers and aspiring novelists

If you have a manuscript in your top draw, or an idea in progress, have been published already or are a newbie and unsure what to do next, this workshop is for you.
