We make beautiful books.
That’s our passion. That’s why Straylight Publishing exists: to bring you up-to-date, relevant information in the best possible presentation. When we design a new book, we consider every available medium to determine what works best for that book. What are we making today? A hardcover? An interactive, tablet-only edition? Both? It depends on the book.
Simple is good.
Making simple look effortless is even better. But the best design is invisible. It gets out of the way of the content and lets the reader experience the words on the page without having to spare any attention for the book itself. Our job is to get the words from the page into your brain with as little effort as possible. After all, you’re not reading the book to admire its margins.
Good design goes deep.
Design isn’t a veneer to be slapped on just before a product gets pushed out the door. Our design process starts the day we decide to publish a book. We work hand-in-hand with our authors to organize and edit content in a way that fits the end product. Then we build the book on that solid foundation, one page at a time.
Only the best will do.
The best design reflects the soul of a product, so only the best content can support the best design. We work with the leading authors in a given field to bring our readers the accurate, current information they need. And our all-digital production process lets us react to new developments quickly and revise our books more easily and more rapidly than some other publishers.
