Elegant typography enhances your message and organizes the content for the reader. When you want a beautiful design, a realistic estimate, experienced advice, and your project done on time, call me: Valerie Brewster and my team at Scribe Typography.

Over the years I've designed and produced everything from hardcover and softcover trade books, to full-color catalogs and newsletters, to e-books and Web sites. Whatever I design, I design in the tradition of fine typography: attending to the content, remembering the reader, and applying my knowledge of the history and form of typefaces to give voice to the message.

Let me help you achieve your publishing goals. Take a look through my portfolio at this site, and contact me to discuss your project.


We are experienced professionals accustomed to adhering to your schedule, working with estimates and budgets, consulting with authors, editors, marketing managers and other members of your team. We know the kind of pressures you are under, and can help you by taking on a complete project or providing support just where you need it.


We understand how important your book is to you. While it is easier than ever to publish, it is actually harder to stand out from the crowd. If you want a book that you'll be proud to present to the reading public and that will be designed around your own style and message, then contact us.

Many web sites offer to design covers and interiors at inexpensive flat rates. We don't work that way. Each project is considered in-depth. After an intial consultation and a preliminary estimate, we will work closely with you. The process, the costs, and the timeline are communicated in writing and agreed upon. The design will be based on reading the work, considering your publishing goals, and then building a beautiful book within the constraints of the project.
