Children's Interior, Casewqrap and Jacket Design

The importance of good layout and design is often overlooked or undervalued by the author of an illustrated children’s book. Beautiful illustrations frequently blind the novice publisher into thinking that the illustrations alone are the key to success. But without the proper design, your children’s book is bound to fail.

At Self PublishingUS., we are here to help you every step of the way. With illustrated children’s books you have three basic choices of format… these formats are determined by binding style. The interior pages are the same with all. The difference is that a paperback book requires a cover. A hardcover book requires a printed casewrap. In addition to a printed casewrap, publishers sometime prefer a separate jacket to make their book complete.

The choice is yours.
