Welcome to DeHaan Arts, a full-service
book design studio for publishers and authors.

Publishing a book is a life-long dream; helping authors achieve it is a privilege and a pleasure. Fundamental skills of painting, drawing, typography and photography are my roots; as is the love of reading—both fiction and nonfiction. Each book project at DeHaan Arts is market researched, custom designed and professionally printed, while ensuring your book-making process is fulfilling, stress-free and affordable (U.S. labor only). My Linkedin profile is out there for more details about my work and experience over the last 20+ years working in publishing. Please browse DeHaanArts.com Book Design Portfolio for examples of book projects.

Clients have included: Wisconsin Historical Society Press, University of Wisconsin Press, Arbor Farm Press, and Campanile Books and indie authors.
