So you’ve got a great piece of editorial design work that you want to show and tell people about? Then you’ve come to the right place. The Book Design Blog showcases unique and inspirational books and publications, and yours could be featured next.
What should I submit?
Despite the blog name, I’m not just interested in beautifully designed books. I’m always looking out for any well-designed, creative, or just unique printed publications. Things like…
…and of course, books. I consider featuring anything printed with a vaguely book-like construction, whether it’s mass-produced, or a lone self-published creation. The weirder and more unique the better.
Please note: I do not feature e-books, digital publications or digital mock-ups of spreads. Despite how fantastic the work may be, the blog is focussed on printed books and publications only. Sorry.
Why should I submit?
What you need convincing to submit? Ok, here’s some benefits of a feature on the blog;

Every submission gets a link back to a website or online portfolio.
It’s can boost your sales
The Book Design Blog is a great place to tell people about your publication, especially if you’re looking to sell a few copies. I’m happy to include links to your online store or your product on Amazon. Many people have reported extra sales thanks to a feature on their work.
