Abstract:

"In Aspects of Contemporary Book Design, Richard Hendel has invited book and journal designers he admires to describe how they approach and practice thier craft. Blending his roles as designer, author, interviewer, and editor, Hendel reaches across both sides of the drafting tables--both real and virtual--to create a book that will appeal to aspiring and seasoned book designers as well as writers, editors, and readers who want to know more about the visual presentation of the written word.
