Let the dynamic design duo, Deborah Perdue and illustrator Tara Thelen, put their magical talents together to create a truly outstanding cover for you, one that will stand out on the bookshelf and online. Whether fiction or non-fiction, we can offer you a compelling cover that will sell your book. Children’s book illustrations available too.

Tara and Deborah have worked together beautifully for 7+ years, and can design a custom cover with a unique illustration tailored just for you. With this option, you can be assured that your cover’s artwork is your very own, unlike using stock illustration or photographs. It is not very often that one book design firm can also offer illustrations AND amazing design work, so take advantage of this wonderful possibility for your own book. Full color illustrations in pastels, pen & ink, watercolors, acrylics are all available to you. As you will see from these samples, Tara’s artwork and palette of styles is varied – she can do just about anything! We sometimes create mixed-media covers too, with a combination of Tara’s illustrations and stock photography. Call 541-862-7021 or email for a complimentary consultation.

Here is what one of our very happy clients said about our teamwork:

“So many well-deserved kudos for Illumination Graphics already! How can I describe differently my experience with Deborah and the artist Tara Thelen? We were like honeybees in a field of clover, testing a blossom here and a blossom there, till we all landed gently upon one perfect flower.”
Robert Snow, author, Altar of Pearl
