My name is Sarah Fountain, I am a children’s book designer, author and illustrator.
Primarily I design beautiful books for children, ranging from picture books to fact books, and maze books to activity books. I work with individual authors, editors and large commercial trade publishers. In the past I worked in-house for educational publishers, children’s magazine publishers and also children’s content publishers. It is a job that I love, and with every book that I work on, I always strive to make it the best book it can be.
As an author and illustrator I am on the path to do more. In 2018 I published my first title, Reynard the Fox myself, and this has been fantastically received. I am also very proud to say that it can be purchased in my local independent bookshop, which for any self-published authors, you will know that this is quite an achievement. Unfortunately lots of self-published titles are often overlooked by bookshops, but by ensuring that the quality of both content and production were of a high, commercial standard – my book can stand proudly alongside its peers.
As well as creating beautiful books, I am also mum to Sidney, 5 and Harriet, 2. As any parent knows, the juggle of work and parenting can be a bit of a faff! I write a Blog on this site too, and you can read many stories of parenting that might reside with you as you go on your own jolly journey of life.
If you are interested in working with me, feel free to get in touch through my Contact page. I would love to hear from you.
All the best, and thanks.
