The Great Farty Slob Beast
for independent publisher, Wacky Bee
The journey: For The Great Farty Slob Beast we helped children’s book publisher Wacky Bee pick out suitably beastly fonts for the cover and pages. We artworked and typeset the pages, letting the text flow around, through, and over the elements of the illustrations.
We set up the cover to the printer’s specifications, adding a spot varnish here and there (on the welly boots, handbag, and WB logo) to contrast against the luxe paper stock and matt lamination. The attention to detail was worth it – Slob Beast was nominated for a British Book Design & Production Award!
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!’
