So how do you make a children's book? Well, we've talked a little bit about the story and the writer. Last week we introduced the illustrator of The Wedding Week.

Next, may I introduce the wonderful Zoe Waring, our designer. Zoe is a graphic designer who lays out the text and images in the book so that they flow together, are consistently beautiful, and are ready for the printer. She chooses the best fonts for the various languages and for our new readers. Zoe gets to choose the best illustrations for the book cover, as we see below. She's also a dab hand at illustrating, so she has a great understanding of the illustrator's work process.

Stay tuned to see Zoe's design in The Wedding Week.
