Five Simple Steps

Accidently publishing practical books for the web community

It all started with a blog post in 2005. I wanted to bring some simple typographic design tips and tricks to web designers from my typographic design roots. What started as one blog post series turned into a few that became a self-published book.

People liked it so much that other authors got in touch asking if I'd publish their books as well. It was then I became an accidental publisher.
