Bella Surgica Book Design

< Back to work

When Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz, M.D., a renowned plastic surgeon, asked us to design his new book, he emphasized the need for a design that would pass muster with national distributors like Barnes & Noble. We began with a Douglas Beasley photograph, an image that transcends the more literal "skin shots" one typically finds on books in this genre. Other elements that contribute to the overall aesthetic include embossed lettering, matte UV coating, spot gloss UV on the title letters for added contrast, and metallic silver duotone printing. The overall effect is a look that is both refined and tactile. Kantor Group managed all production, including printing and binding.

Due to Dr. Joe's patient confidentiality agreements, we are unable to show you interior pages of this book.

Your Body, Your Beauty, Your Safety was met with rave reviews and quickly won a Book Achievement Award from MIPA (Midwest Independent Publishers Association), First Place in the Health/Fitness/Medicine category.

We also developed a new eBook edition, which is now available through all online bookstores, including Amazon and Barnes &  Noble.
