Award-winning book designer Nick Zelinger tackles the challenging task of how to create a children’s book you can be proud of — and sell by the boatload!

In the Art of Children’s Books, he will set the stage for:

  • What to look for in an illustrator.
  • Setting guidelines for you and your artist.
  • The most common mistakes authors make and how to avoid them.
  • Identifying pitfalls to avoid — saving you time, money, and aggravation.
  • How to determine size, fonts, and printer.
  • The challenges and limitations of printing in color.
  • And much more.

Even if you don’t think of yourself as a children’s author, there are lots of takeaways in this session including why adults should be reading children’s books for their own writing. Nick Zelinger of NZ Graphics is a multiple award-winning book designer with over 30 years’ experience in graphic design, print media, and publishing.

He and his clients have garnered more than 150 national and international book awards. Nick’s dedication to detail, his commitment to deadlines, and his fervent belief that being a team player is essential for success in the publishing world, have kept his clients coming back.

And … he’s loved reading children’s books since he was a kid … and still does.
