Who We Are

We are Capsules Book, a boutique independent publisher originally from Melbourne, Australia.

Originally born out of a graphic design company working with small businesses, media and advertising agencies. 

As a business with a high demand for outsourcing creative services, we identified the need to connect freelance creatives with businesses.

We began working on our first creative directory in 2015. Since then we have had the honour of working with hundreds of talented creatives worldwide, working in a range of disciplines including illustration, vector art, digital illustration, collage and mixed media and hand-lettering and typography.

What We Do For Artists

We will work closely with you to publish a custom creative profile featuring highlights from your portfolio and an artist biography. The artist biography includes your contact details, qualifications, professional milestones and the inspiration behind your work.

Our Publications

As practicing creative professionals we agree that presentation is everything. We take immense pride in the crafting our publications. All Capsules books are hardback directories printed on FSC certified paper stock and housed within a slipcase incorporating foil stamping or embellishments and delivered in bespoke branded mailer packaging.


Free Open Source Creative Resources

As part of our commitment to our growing global creative community we will be releasing free, open source creative resources every week for you to use and abuse how you see fit!


Capsules x Book Aid International


We are pleased to announce our partnership with Book Aid International. Moving forward 100% of proceeds from book sales of our 'Capsules' range of arts directories will be donated to Book Aid International. 

Book Aid International is the UK’s leading international book donation and library development charity. Every year, the charity aims to ship one million new books to thousands of libraries in communities where people have very few opportunities to access books.
Book Aid International works with an extensive network of libraries, schools, hospitals, NGOs and other partners to ensure that the books it sends reach those who are most in need. In addition, Book Aid International also runs library development projects which build the capacity of libraries to support readers and communities.
