THE WORK
Book making as an art. Packaging and Design is a spirit of collaboration through the combined development of high-quality editorial and design— each project tailored for the well-defined audience. Since 1983 Debra McQuiston has worked with a broad scope of clients in creating quality-illustrated titles for publishers throughout the United States.

Our areas of focus include lifestyle, food, interior design, and cooking. Combining creative bookmaking with the latest technology, McQuiston Books offers a full menu of development, project management, design, and production services. A newly added focal point is the writing and illustrating of children's books.

Awards
They do look nice on a wall, but there is more to them that that. They have a way of making us do better work, they make us test our skills against our peers. Although McQuiston Books seldom enters competitions any longer, for a small firm with limited output the rewards and honors we have received make us very proud.
