What do book designers think about as they turn manuscripts into printed books? In this unique and appealing volume, book designer Richard Hendel and eight other talented book designers discuss their approaches and working methods. They consider the problems posed by a wide range of projects - selection of a book's size and shape, choice of typeface for text and display, arrangement of type on the page, and determination of typographic details for all parts of the book within manufacturing and budget limitations. Written not only for seasoned and novice book designers, this book will fascinate others in publishing, as well as all readers and authors who are curious to know how books end up looking the way they do.
