Publisher Comments:

From award-winning writer and designer Andrew Haslam comes the final word on book design. This authoritative text guides readers through establishing formats, constructing grids, choosing typefaces, designing a jacket, and, finally, preparing materials for the printer, with more than 300 illustrations to demonstrate every aspect of the process. Interviews with professional book designers provide valuable insight, and an extensive glossary of editorial, design, and production terms make a handy reference for the burgeoning new designer. <BR>Book Design is one of three titles this spring from Abrams Studio, our new imprint dedicated to providing artists and designers with innovative, affordable books to help them improve their skills.

Book News Annotation:

Haslam (communication design, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London) presents a reference text for design students and professionals examining the art of book design. Coverage includes the origins and definitions of the book; how a book is created; the roles of the publishing industry; basic approaches to book design; aspects of the typographic palette, including format, defining the text area and constructing a grid, typographic arrangement, and type size and typeface; how type and image are used in a variety of ways to communicate a message to the reader within books and on covers and jackets; and aspects of the manufacture process, including preproduction, paper and paper engineering, printing, and binding. Illustrated throughout with b&w and color diagrams and photographs. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
