Welcome to Frabjous Books. We are UK based book designers and typesetters producing
books at an attractive price for authors, societies and publishers.
We have been designing and typesetting books and journals for over 25 years and are
experienced in all aspects of book production. Offering a range of services, we specialise in
landscape and natural history volumes; archaeological excavation reports and town surveys;
general history books; medieval texts; guidebooks and picture books. We work quickly and efficiently
and are happy to step in at a moment's notice to meet a tight publication date.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements..
We provide an efficient and friendly typesetting service for societies who produce their
own monographs, journals and newsletters. Recently finished titles include
History for the Society for Landscape Studies, Medium Aevum for the Society for the Study
of Medieval Languages and Literature, and Past the newsletter of the Prehistoric Society.
We enjoy working with small societies and will continue to offer them a quality service at
an affordable price.
Good book design is simple but effective. The final book should be easy to read with wellbalanced,
attractive spreads. We can turn your finished manuscript into a beautiful,
professional book with a striking cover design. We offer a bespoke service for
self-publishing authors and can provide advice with the following services:
Interior design and typesetting
Basic copy-editing of text
Scanning and/or retouching images
Advice and estimates for digital and traditional printing
We also offer an affordable typesetting service for authors asked to provide print-ready
files for their publisher. Please contact us for details.
Ruffians and Loose Women is the latest title by self-publishing author Elinor Kapp. It is
