Alix Wood Books is a children's book packaging company and content provider, focusing on producing highly illustrated children's non-fiction titles.

We take projects from concept through to final files, commissioning authors, editors, illustrators and photographers where required.

We also offer book design or editorial services directly to publishers who may wish us to work with their own in-house teams. We are well-known for our friendly approach and calm under crisis, and our in-depth knowledge of relevant software and the print and e-book process.


Alix Wood is an experienced and imaginative author and designer, principally working in children's non-fiction. Alix initially trained as a primary school teacher, achieving a 2:1 BEd (Hons) from Froebel College, Roehampton University. After moving to the United States due to her husband's job relocation she took a graphic design and illustration course and started producing books for children. With her strong background in design and her knowledge of child development, producing attractive educational books for children was the perfect job.
