Bringing children’s books to life

Children’s author, Lee Ellis and illustrator Mark Dobson approached us at the end of last year to help them produce a rush order of their book ‘Charlotte’s Fall’.

‘Charlotte’s Fall’ is just one of a series of fascinating children’s books about ‘The-ings’; a building force that protects people from disease-causing organisms and substances. These unique stories were created by Lee who spent many years looking for the right person to help make his ideas come to life with illustrations. Mark and Lee began working together in 2004, publishing their first book ‘Simon the Fishy’ in 2016.

Having worked with Mark throughout his career as a graphic designer, he approached us when he needed an urgent print of his book. We printed the 43 page paperback book with a silk finish to bring the vivid and colourful illustrations to life.

Mark Dobson, commented: “The service we received from Wood Richardson was superb. Having worked with Wood Richardson in the past, I knew they were a printer I could trust. They were able to turn the job around in 24 hours and deliver a very high quality production.”
