Mentoring for newer personal historians
Robin Brooks of The Beauty of Books trains new personal historians in how to work most effectively with book designers, and—with her over 40 years creating books—she is able to offer a whole lot more!
She guides you in how to prepare your manuscript so you are doing your best for your client and for the budget. She offers tips on how to organize your images, making it far simpler to work with them. She spells out how best to note where each image goes so it is a dream for the designer to work with; time is money.
She sees you through to your first portfolio piece, making recommendations on the size of your book, what form it might take, and the best printer to use for your specific project and budget.
She acts as a support person throughout your often challenging first project.
