Book Interior Design

It may be surprising to hear, but your book’s interior design is one of the most important steps in the book design process. While a striking cover will draw readers in, the interior pages can make or break the entire reading experience. If a book’s interior pages are well designed, the reader will not even notice. On the other hand, if the book’s interior layout is poorly designed, it’s all the reader will notice. This is frustrating and distracting and will likely result in an abandoned book. At Mayfly, we provide custom book interior design services to ensure the most enjoyable experience for your reader by always keeping your book’s content and target audience top of mind.

Our Book Interior Design Process

Initial Design of Your Book’s Interior Pages

During this first step of the process, your book interior designer will create custom page designs tailored to your individual preferences and project needs. During this stage, you will receive page design samples from your designer, clearly identifying the typography, page flow, margins, and other visual components included in your book. You will also receive thoughtfully-curated samples from outlier pages that might include a sample of your included images, captions, tables, or pull quotes in need of an extra design touch.

These include pages and elements like:

  • Title page
  • Copyright page
  • Table of contents
  • Dedication
  • Acknowledgments
  • Images you wish to include
  • Pull quotes, tables, excerpts

Review Process

Once you receive these sample pages, the next step is to print them out at home and review the fonts and text sizes suggested for the body text, typography, various headings and subheadings, chapter pages, as well as any unique textual and visual elements you might have in your book.

Final Page Design

After incorporating all of your feedback, making necessary changes, and receiving final approval, this page design will serve as a blueprint for the overall aesthetic of the remaining interior pages of your book. This will allow us to seamlessly move on to the next step of typesetting and formatting your book.

Customer Reviews

Ryan masterfully wove a beautiful tapestry of 25 military badges, 30 bravery/service medals, and 279 photographs, into 332 pages of manuscript. The outstanding result is my new book titled: “Duty First (A Trilogy of Wars),” which I believe has taken graphic design to the next level of excellence. As a result I strongly recommend “Mayfly” to our next generation of authors.

—Dr. Philip (Tom) Cobley, Duty First

I could not have been more pleased with the professionalism of Mayfly. Ryan was terrific to work with, the communication was outstanding, and he finished the project- which had a relatively short window- right on time. The book looks great! I would highly recommend Mayfly and look forward to working with them again.

—Julie Pfitzinger, Paris Morning Publications
