Spotlight: Design & Production Team

Our design & production team have been hard at work behind the scenes creating our final layout of the book, as well as designing some lovely postcards. Most recently, they’ve been working on producing final drafts of both the internal pages and the cover.

We have been using Adobe CreativeSuite to lay out over 300 pages of text.

‘It’s been an astronomical learning curve!’ says Ruth G.

Art Director Margot has been working on the design of the cover. Based on market research, the cover incorporates modern style, and throwbacks to the 1920s, the era of the book’s initial publication. The design itself is based around the actual star Arcturus, and the constellation surrounding it.

The whole AVTA team are really excited to see our book coming to life – keep up with our journey on facebook, instagram and twitter.
