Listen to Designing Books with Sandy Cull and Imogen Stubbs

Sandy Cull, Imogen Stubbs and their designs

Our Magic Hour (design by Imogen Stubbs, bottom centre) and Resurrection Bay (design by Sandy Cull, top centre)

As much as we're doing ebooks, it's still very much about the object.

Imogen Stubbs

For this episode we brought two of Australia's best book designers together for a podcast-only conversation about their careers, their craft and how it all comes together.

Sandy Cull is a freelance book designer and a member of the Australian Book Design Hall of Fame, while Imogen Stubbs is an emerging designer and art director at Text Publishing. Coming at this conversation from different angles, they compare notes on the book design industry, the creative process and how they've worked with authors and publishers to create the perfect cover.
