Variety and Richness
Rosenberry Books creates “Book in Hand” editions for individuals and groups who wish to have their work published in beautifully-designed handbound editions. Rosenberry Books offers something very different from the mainstream publishing industry, which is no longer able to respond to the variety and richness of human endeavor.
Make it Happen!
Why wait for the “powers-that-be” to make your book come true? We want to work with you to make your unique works available in fine handbound editions.
Working with book designer-author-illustrator Diane Katz, you will participate in the design of your book in order to achieve a publication that is sensitive to your idea and expression. Versatile and responsive to the text, Ms Katz can also illustrate your book.
Alternative to Planned Obsolescence
Rosenberry Books also seeks to provide an alternative to the paperback and desktop publishing norm of poorly-designed books that fall apart as you read them. We are not the only ones who are tired of books that are nothing more than downloads with glued edges.
Deeper Experience of the Contents
A well-made, beautifully-designed book can be a treasured object which provides a deeper experience of the contents. Employing fine design, strong & innovative construction and fine art materials, we create for you a beautiful, long-lasting book. But we keep our prices desktop-publishing competitive to make our alternative dream more accessible and possible.
Your readers can experience reading in a new way through the multi-sensory pleasures of a book — handmade to last for generations — by Rosenberry Books.
