Mentoring for new personal historians
Robin Brooks of The Beauty of Books trains new personal historians in how to work most effectively with book designers.
She guides you in how to prepare your manuscript efficiently so you are doing your best for your client and for the budget. She offers tips on how to prepare your images, making it far simpler to work with them. She teaches you how to delineate how to let the designer know where each image goes so it is easy; 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 through your sometimes challenging first project.
APH personal historian for With Dedication to Service: A Collection of Stories shared by Henry R. Passi:
“I celebrate all the new things I learned during this project, especially through working with you. Your patience, careful instructions, and gentle suggestions were all appreciated.”
