UppityBrunch, Shana’s delightfully clever and charming cookbook is for sale now!

Pro book designers that work for you.
Welcome to our real design studio, staffed by artists who love books and know the art of making yours look as good as the biggest publishers. (We do books for them too.) No “meatgrinders” here, computers squirting out template after template. We’ve been designing print books for 30 years, and creating custom eBooks since they were invented.
You have a question? We’re quick to answer all emails. Or call us on the phone. Our studio has big bright windows, cheerful people, sunny flowers and great coffee. We’re a happy bunch to work with.

If you’re not thrilled with what we offer, there’s no obligation. You can just say, “no thanks.”
