Jenny Hale signs for Bookouture

There are some books that just make everything seem right with the world.  For us Coming Home for Christmas by Jenny Hale is one of those – as we read the manuscript we were blown away by a beautifully observed and heart-warming story.

Branding – what’s really important?

The creation of our hand-crafted bookouture logo was a labour of love, but also an exercise in priorities. Designing any kind of logo is always tricky.  Yeah, it’s only one or two words… but how do you get that one graphic to represent everything about your business? Well, here’s the trick – you don’t.  It […]

Book-cou-who? What’s in a name

Bookouture – what’s in a name   bookouture might sound like a bit of a mouthful – but we chose it to capture the very essence of what we do. Naming any new venture isn’t easy.  Hours of brainstorming, evaluating, domain-name checking and brainstorming again are par for the course – until words seem to […]

Rip it up and start again

At bookouture our goal is to be the best of a new generation of publishers.  To re-imagine what a publisher should look like today.
