Experienced book designer, typesetter, and print production professional, looking for freelance design, layout, revision, photo retouching and color correction work. I'm current with both InDesign and QuarkXPress, specializing in books and long documents. If a POD printer bounced your job because it was created in unsupported software, I can help you with that. If all you need are revisions to an obsolete Quark file, I can update that for you or convert it to InDesign. If all you have is a high-res PDF of an old job and you need minor revisions, I can usually help with that, depending on how the PDF was created.
I can also help you find a printer and consult with you about the printing process.
I've had decades of experience working closely with self-publishing writers and small book publishers, producing books for digital print-on-demand and traditional offset printing. I learned traditional typesetting 10 years before desktop publishing began, have a B.A. in English, and worked for many years in typesetting shops, book publishing houses, and printing companies, in NYC and Minneapolis; expert in InDesign, QuarkXPress, Acrobat, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I also provide high-end scanning services.
