Does Floris Books work with freelancers?
All our key functions -- editorial, production and marketing -- are handled inhouse, so we rarely use freelancers for that type of work. However, we sometimes use freelance translators and illustrators. If you think your illustration style might fit our list, please email email@example.com with a link to your blog or online portfolio. Please don't send illustrations in the mail, or as attachments to emails.
