We can produce illustrations for your new title - from a simple line drawing, to a collection of full colour illustrations for use throughout your manuscript. Tricorn Books also offer original drawings for front and back cover designs, and internal pages. Our team are happy to work from your specifications or produce a range of roughs to choose from.

Simple chapter breaks, logos or portraits can be quick, simple and inexpensive - from as little as £20 per drawing.


We have our own in-house illustrator with an illustrious pedigree, who has worked on a range of projects for us - most notably Clever Freddie, which is now going to a second print run. Raphilena Bonito has also worked on over 30 book jackets for the Western author, Caleb Rand that are available at Amazon worldwide.
