An example of book publishing

Noticing Newton Abbot

Noticing Newton Abbot is an exploration of Newton Abbot’s remarkable heritage. Tess Walker’s extensive photographs and local artist Ewan Walton’s detailed drawings, capture the soul of the most iconic buildings and complement a text that not only describes the architectural features of the different buildings but tells the stories of some of the people who lived and worked in them – tales of riots, fairs and floods, as well as the tragedy and comedy of the lives of everyday people.

We Make Media designed Noticing Newton Abbot, advised on pagination, size and paper stock, and liaised with a local printer to produce this high-quality local book.

“Jeff did an excellent design for a book that could have looked rather boring – very varied layout that invited the reader to explore. And he was very accommodating of any last-minute changes, and totally unflappable. A pleasure to work with.”

Michael Bennie, Editor

“Our book looks great! We Make Media certainly took the time to understand our project and Jeff is really easy to work with.”
