About

I’m Zoe and I’m all about delivering impeccable book interiors.

INABI aims to simplify the otherwise daunting process of typesetting a professional book.

With INABI, you will always interact with me (a human!) and never a bot. I will personally take you through this process from start to finish, so you will never feel passed around.

I always triple check my files before sending them out.

My pricing model is fair and transparent, because surprises are only fun if cake is involved.

My Story

Hi, I’m Zoe Norvell and I Need a Book Interior is an extension of my one-woman design studio. I built INABI in 2022.

My career in publishing began as an in-house book cover designer at Simon & Schuster. Later, I transitioned to Penguin Random House. Since 2015, I have been freelancing full-time.

After exclusively designing book covers for 10 years, I found myself wanting to expand my skillset. I began taking courses in the art of typesetting and immediately became hooked. While some designers might find typesetting to be “boring,” I find it strangely satisfying. I enjoy solving puzzles of all kinds and turning a manuscript into a physical book is another puzzle that I’m equipped to solve.

If you choose to hire INABI, I will be your main point of contact, and I personally lay out every book interior.

I also run a website called I Need a Book Cover. INABC is a passion project and a resource for the entire book design community.
