BookdesignPaperback - 2006
More than simply a reference for aspiring graphic designers, Andrew Haslam's Book Design is an inclusive look at design history, from papyrus scrolls to modern digital printing. Exploring and examining the merits of techniques from geometric page divisions to grid and quad systems, Haslam provides insight into the evolution of design sensibilities over the past four thousand years. Beyond merely laying out a page, Book Design offers advice on interpreting design briefs, selecting and using typefaces and type, handling images, and creating information graphics. All stages of book production are covered, from editorial direction to printing and binding, making Book Design an essential tool for designers at all levels. Book jacket.
