Designing and formatting a series of books for Cornelius Coe

Cornelius Coe is the pen-name of a writer based in Swindon, UK. His work can be described as Dark, Psychological, Mystery and Noir. I like to call it Kafka-esque. He never quite promoted his books and didn't really use covers for them, so he and his work wasn't known to the public. I helped him with a series of covers that would spark the interest of a potential reader of this specific genre.

Beside coming up with a brand across the series of three books, I have also formatted and edited the inside of the books, designing the editorial aspect. I made sure the font I chose matches the genre and atmosphere of the books as well as the technical side of things such as that there are no 'rivers' and 'widows' within the book.
Also, I've converted all the books into digital ebooks, working on iPads and other gadgets, and it is accessible on Amazon for Kindle.
