About Abi

I’m Abi a book designer, and publisher of iola bookazine. I specialise in self-published books, magazines and author resources. 

Over 15 years I’ve produced design work for Oxford Psychologists Press, Pentacor (textbook and magazine design for BBC, OUP, Pearson, Hodder and Stoughton), Pear Tree Design, Just Fabrics, Oxfordshire County Council and iola bookazine. I was mentored by designer for British Vogue magazine, Peter Jones.

I’m an avid reader of books, drink coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon and take photos of flowers like they are going out of fashion!

I live in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds in the UK with my three children. It’s my passion to create and my main mediums are words and design, the combination of image and words being a team that convey deeper meaning. I also love making spaces places of peace and beauty.

When I’m not behind a screen I love to take walks, read books by the fire and take photos of flowers, but never of food, unless it’s cake, because there is always time for cake.
