Book Interior Design

While ebooks are quick and easy to sell, most authors still want print copies, both for themselves and their readers. I can help you design the interior pages to ensure a smooth reading experience.


What is Book Interior Design?

When you open a copy of a real book, have you ever noticed the little details put into the pages you’re turning? The chapter headings, the page numbers, the spacing between lines, the fonts. All of these things are easily taken for granted, but they are all part of a book’s interior design, also known as print formatting. Sure, you can simply set the margins on Word and upload a file, but how will it look when you open that first copy of your book? I can help you ensure that your book’s design is a fitting reflection of the care you’ve put into the words telling your story.


Pricing for this service starts at $0.001 per word. This service is primarily performed on the weekend, so slots are limited. All projects will have a minimum fee of $40 regardless of word count.

Factors that will increase the cost: images, multiple fonts used, footnotes, or complicated layouts.

What I Provide With Book Interior Design

Book designs by Pikko’s House are created using Adobe InDesign 2017 and delivered in PDF format. Minimal design elements such as icons, drawings, brushes, and imagery are included with the fee and are purchased with standard usage licenses. Clients who intend to print and distribute a significant amount of copies should inquire about usage rights.

Should you hire me to do your book’s interior design, the service includes the following:

  • Chapter heading design of your choice
  • JPG preview image of sample chapter heading
  • PDF proof containing front matter, manuscript, and back matter
  • Two style changes (this does not include fixing errors)
  • Two image insertions
  • Final PDF file for printing

Types of manuscripts accepted for book interior design:

  • Short stories
  • Novellettes
  • Novellas
  • Novels

Please note that I do not offer this service for nonfiction manuscripts. Should you wish to inquire, I can refer you to someone else who may be able to help you.
