If you follow us on Instagram, you might have noticed that we’ve been sharing a few more photos around the shop to give you all a peek at what book production looks like at PQL. Recently, we featured several photos of Metamorphosis: Selected Children’s Literature by P.K. Page as it made its way through the various stages. It was a challenging book because it contains poetry, prose and drama, all of which require particular design sensibilities to make them really look their best. But the result is an eye-catching and wide-ranging collection with a little bit for everyone.
Here’s a peek at the process!
And there you have it, a look at a few of the many steps that went into creating this fabulous and challenging book.
If you would like a copy of Metamorphosis, it is easy to order online in print or digital format. You could also support your favourite indie bookseller and ask them to order a print copy for you!
