About

You’ll find all the help you need right here to get your book to press on time and on budget. Really! We’ve been helping authors since 1995, designing novels, nonfiction books, children’s books, memoirs, poetry books, art books, scientific journals, coffee table books, and everything in between.

Linda Parke

 

Raven Book Design was established in 1995 by Fiona Raven. Linda Parke joined forces with Fiona in 2007, and together they’ve provided top quality book design services to indie authors worldwide. In 2017, Fiona took a step back from designing books to focus on her own book, Book Design Made Simple, and Linda assumed the role of senior designer.

We’ve designed hundreds of books in collaboration with authors just like you, and gained a lot of experience along the way. That’s why we’re able to answer many of your questions and help you avoid costly pitfalls.

You’ve probably noticed that the publishing industry has changed dramatically in recent years. With the advent of digital printing, print-on-demand, and ebooks, there are now more choices than ever for book publishing. We specialize in book design and stay current with the latest trends and technologies so we can continue to offer you the best possible product based on your publishing needs.

Being independent book designers allows us to work directly with you to achieve the result you’re looking for. We don’t subcontract work to less experienced designers or send it offshore. This way we can maintain the highest standards of quality while involving you in the process as much or as little as you want. Our priority is that you get exactly what you want for your finished book.

Our design studio is located on Granville Island in the heart of the arts community in Vancouver, Canada. Yet very few of our clients are able to come to our studio in person, so instead we meet by phone, email or Skype. If you’d like to discuss your upcoming book, please visit our Contact page and find the easiest way for you to reach us. We look forward to hearing from you!
