I am a multi-skilled publishing expert with extensive experience commissioning, editing, designing and producing high-end and award-winning books in the fields of art, design and architecture.
While living in South Africa I was co-founder and director of Fourthwall Books, an independent art publisher with global distribution, which has produced and launched 41 books to date. Most recently, the book Waiting for the Sibyl by William Kentridge, for which I was book designer and production manager, was awarded the prestigious Best Dutch Book Design Award 2020.
Without exception, the books in my portfolio demonstrate an innovative editorial approach, a strong relationship between content and form, and excellent design and production.
I have a thorough technical understanding and experience of both the digital and lithographic printing process and the production of print ready artwork. I have been on press for multiple book projects with printers in the Netherlands, Germany, Wales, Belgium, Italy, South Africa and China.
