Descripción

Book Design Made Simple gives DIY authors, small presses, and graphic designers—novices and professionals alike—the power to design their own books. It\u2019s the only book of its kind, explaining every step from installing Adobe\u00ae InDesign\u00ae right through to sending the files to press.Book Design Made Simple explains WHAT book design is, and HOW to do it. It guides the novice designer through the process of leasing and installing Adobe\u00ae InDesign\u00ae and then shows how to place the author\u2019s text into real book pages right away. From there, the look of the text is refined, one element at a time, until it develops into a coherent design that complements the text. Every imaginable kind of text is shown, and meticulous instructions are given. Examples include chapter openings, part openings, headings, lists, poetry, tables, math, extracts, table of contents, and index. Multiple choices are offered for each design element so that the reader can decide on a look and learn how to achieve it.Stressing their conviction that a front book cover attracts but it\u2019s the back cover that sells, the authors devote an entire section to cover design—front, back, and spine—for paperbacks, dust jackets, and hard covers. With examples and illustrations, the reader is guided through decisions about typefaces, images, colors, and layout, and is given many choices as to what to include on the back cover. Setting up an Adobe\u00ae InDesign\u00ae document to meet printers\u2019 specifications is explained in detail. The result is a cover that will look professional in the marketplace and attract readers.Although print books are emphasized, ebooks are also considered throughout. Some design features that work well in print might not translate in an ebook, so cautions and instructions are given in each instance.Together with thorough design instruction, all kinds of publishing advice is offered along the way, guiding the reader through som
