Resource Title: Gessert Books: Book Layout & Ebook Formatting

Pitch: Professional book formatting, designing & typesetting.


I’m Phillip Gessert; and I’m a book designer, typesetter and print/ebook formatter in Amarillo, TX. I began building books full time in 2011, and am especially passionate about page typography. I pride myself on building books to the highest standard of quality, both aesthetically and functionally.
I provide fully validated ePub and MOBI files, suitable for publishing on the Kindle Store and other retailers. All ebooks are created using hand-coded HTML & CSS, and take the unique considerations for different devices into account. The books are built to be flexible and render predictably across a range of e-readers. And I use traditional and classical typographical principles to give the books an appealing look.
I also provide PDF files suitable for print. I’m happy to build to Createspace or Ingram specifications, or simply build to industry-standard print-readiness. I use my pre-press experience to preflight and prepare PDF files that most any print service provider would be delighted to receive.

Why authors should care about this resource:

I pride myself in finding high-quality, low cost solutions to common design problems. I aim to find a good nexus between quality and cost. This means I am not the cheapest book designer, but I do deliver the best bang for your buck.
I do not treat your book as a rote technical task. I am a designer, first and foremost, and strive to create tasteful and elegant designs.
