Book Editor & Designer

Jack & Hugh at Contini's George Street, Edinburgh

Meet Hugh Hillyard-Parker my Editor and

Book Designer

Hugh and I seen celebrating the book launch of the 1st Edition, launched 4th July 2017 with a dinner at Contini’s Restaurant, George Street, Edinburgh.

Hugh is a professional Editor and Book Designer, based in Edinburgh and with over 25 years experience in the business. He particularly likes working on illustrated books and his most favourite period in history happens to be the 18th century. I am indeed immensely grateful for his skill, dedication and professionalism in producing such an eye-catching publication to compliment my Chippendale marquetry composition.

One cannot produce a book, particularly one with over 700 illustrations as mine has, without the skill and experience of a professional Editor/Book-designer. Hugh Hilliard-Parker is such a man and the production of the book from the highly professional front cover, through the 304 colourfully illustrated pages, show off his skills throughout. I must add here, this is only Hugh’s day job. Come evenings and weekend, Hugh can be found in the musical world singing either opera or church music around Edinburgh as a professional baritone. Hugh, I must add, also excels in this field.
