Prices & Quotes

The costs of book design depend on the type of your book cover (softcover, hardcover, hardcover with dust jacket, soft cover with flaps) and on the complexity of page layout (simple black&white text pages versus complex pages such as glossary, bibliography, index, reference materials, endnotes, headings, subheadings, pages containing images, illustrations, art and photography).
