The Dougal Daley Series
for Wacky Bee Books
The journey: Author Jackie Merchant has taken Dougal on two chaotic adventures so far, with a third book in the series arriving for production with us soon. We helped Louise at Wacky Bee pick out some fun fonts for the pages, and typeset the manuscripts, adding in lots of black and white illustrations by Loretta Schauer. We also produced eBook files.
We artworked Loretta’s cover designs into print-ready formats, making sure the spines were the correct size and adding a gorgeous metallic turquoise foil to the series titles on the front covers and spines.
Louise Jordan, MD of Wacky Bee, says: ‘I refer to Lucy and Head & Heart as my “production team”. Which sounds just as grand as it actually is! I would love to keep them as “my secret” so that no-one else can use them but, given how good they are, that would be very unfair. They are extremely approachable and offer a complete service. Big thumbs up!’
