I love books, reading them perhaps to excess, and especially designing them. I am a self-taught book designer/graphic artist. Some many years back I was in a writing group with amazingly talented writers. I said to them, "you should be published", but, they replied, "It is terribly hard to get one's foot in a publisher's door, almost impossible!" So I decided to create and publish a literary journal, the Equinox. It lasted five years, at which point I kind of burned out on the financing and marketing duties of such an enterprise. But I learned so much about designing and formatting books and loved the pleasure of helping self-publishing authors make a literary dream come to fruition. So I established The Booksmyth. What a delight! I meet interesting, nice people and help them turn their messy manuscript into a lovely book they can share with pleasure.
