I asked Dave to design and publish a client’s book. Dave’s work was a revelation; his book design—his sense of what a page should be like, his typesetting and choice of font, his ornaments, and his cover—showed a remarkable sensitivity to my client’s work and was absolutely beautiful, to boot. He involved me as an editor every step of the way, letting me see what he had done and cheerfully making changes at my request. As well, he must have read the typeset copy a dozen times, searching for errors that I had missed. The end result was elegant without being showy, perfectly in tune with the book’s mood, and a joy both to hold and to read. My client was absolutely delighted, and so was I. I highly recommend Dave as a book designer and publisher. And he also writes a mean sentence.
Every two weeks, I send out a new article about business communication. Storytelling, writing, and presentation skills are common topics, though I've been known to throw in an occasional oddball post around the holidays. Your questions and comments are always welcome!
