We have worked with Chandler Design for quite a few of our books and I’ve been really happy with John’s professionalism and attention to detail on every project. Authors have been consistently pleased with how their books have turned out – John’s work is always of a very high standard. I think the fact that I keep coming back to them with each new project speaks volumes.

Just as good and helpful as when I used them for the first time some years ago. Many thanks for a speedy and efficient process with good design.

Book cover design for the Institute of Intelligent Marketing“John designed our book with great creativity and attention to detail. We could not be more delighted with the result. Throughout the whole process John was a delight to work with and was very patient answering all our questions as first time publishers. The end result is something we as authors are extremely proud of and in no smart part due to the design that John created for our material. We would highly recommend his design services to anyone thinking of publishing a book.”

I had become despondent in my attempts to get my book printed and published. Meeting John solved the problems I was having. He understood what I wanted and by working together we very quickly got the book designed, printed and published.

The Chandlers were great to work with – knowledgeable, professional, efficient, carrying out each stage with the utmost personal care. Everything I had hoped for and more.

I am very pleased that I found Chandler Book Design to handle the production of my book on wartime Italy. Their service is professional, prompt and friendly. The cover and text layout that John designed for ‘Beyond the Wire’ are first class.
Malcolm Tudor, Author

This is the second cover that Chandler Book Design has created for me. John takes my original ideas and gives them a whole new dimension. He remains sympathetic to the concept but spins off into areas I would never have thought of. His designs have had a big impact on my young readers and I’m delighted with the way they stand out alongside other books on shelves. The cover for ‘The Beltheron Select’ has received ‘Wow!’s from a number of classrooms.

One of the most important aspects of self-publishing is to produce a novel that can compete with books that are being designed and distributed by big publishers. If your book is in Waterstones and it’s sitting next to books from Harper Collins, Penguin and Faber & Faber, your cover needs to be up to their standards if not surpass their designs. Finding Chandler Book Design was a real blessing. With their help, I am confident the overall production of my book can compete and, in some cases, outshine books coming from many mainstream publishing houses. An excellent and highly recommended service.

A book is sometimes a lonely and difficult enterprise. At the point of design and printing you need top notch support to get that book text to reality. My experience with Chandler Book Design was faultless. They were prompt, reliable, helpful and keen to get the creative side right. The acid test is ‘Would you use them again?’; Answer – absolutely.

Chandler Design rose to the difficult challenge of publishing a handwritten diary from the 1930’s packed with original watercolours. The final book lost none of its original charm and was delivered on time and on budget. Forgotten Titles will certainly be using them again.
