Books for Adults
Mercer Design have produced book design for the world-famous Natural History Museum for over 15 years. We’ve designed a diverse range of books ranging from serious reference books, to exhibition catalogues and childrens’ books.
Mercer Design are classically trained book designers. We know our rectos from our versos and our fore-edges from our gutters! We are expert typographers and we see typography as the foundation of good book design. We also have technical illustration skills and create anatomical illustrations, maps and diagrams.
Many of the books we design tie-in with events at the Natural History Museum. 99% Ape was published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Darwin’s theory of evolution. Publication of Chinese art and the Reeves Collection coincided with the launch of the Museum’s Images of Nature gallery.
