Intuitive Eating

by Jana Brunclikova

This bespoke recipe book was self published by a naturopath and raw food and it's the best selling book we've printed to date.

Jana sought meaning at every level and worked with us to find materials that reflected her love for nature, organic recipes and design. She chose custom elements including enviro-friendly paper, a raw board cover with an exposed spine binding, and coloured paper inserts.

A phased edition was the most economical approach and the key to her success. After the initial run of 150 copies, the word spread and she has printed 600 to date.
