Building books is what I do!


In memoriam . . .

On June 7, 2009, we lost a very special man, a dear friend, and mentor. Irving “Perk” Perkins was a gifted book designer and owner of IPA - Irving Perkins Associates (book design) and Pagesteers, Inc.(Typesetting) companies.

I worked for Perk for several years as a book designer and layout artist. While under his tutelage, I designed nearly a thousand books, learning from Perk a lot about the true art of book design. IPA designed books for most of the major publishers in NYC (Simon & Schuster, Crown, Harper Collins, Bantam Dell, etc.), among many other publishers.

In the early years, we drew each page design by pencil, writing out (what seemed like endless) specs for every element in the book. In the later years, we developed a method of creating typeset designs, eventually leading to what is now InDesign.

We will miss Perk, not only for his talents as a book designer. compositor, and fellow golfer, but mostly as a friend. I owe a lot to Perk.

Thank you Perk . . .
