Presentation styling for a book aimed at children which explores standard curriculum mathematics in a striking, visual way.
Styling for a new encyclopaedic history of human civilisation, starting from early developments in Homo sapiens and moving through to modern day life.
Presentation styling for a book on Revolutions. Styling for each section was chosen to be in sympathy with the period of the events.

Layout work on the History book, after the styles had been adapted by the publishing house.
Layout work on several sections of this large encyclopaedia of the Earth involved closely reading the text and commissioning illustrations to explain the complex systems explained in the book.
Presentation design for a book on eco-living.
A small printed book covering interesting websites, back when people still made paper guides to the web! The cover implies the filtering of web material by the book — presenting an edited list of the most useful sites on the web.
