Descripción Libanus Press, Marlborough / Oak Knoll Press, New Castle (Distributor) /, 2005. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. First Edition.. 434 pages. Softcover. New book. BOOKS ON BOOKS. A comprehensive guide to typography and typesetting. Books depend on good design to communicate. Every type of book, from a poetry collection to an encyclopedia, has its own style of communication. This manual describes the principals of good design, why they exist, and how to put them to practice. Book Typography leads the reader from an understanding of what is a readable text, through the construction of books through all their different forms - novels, illustrated books and complex reference works. The organization of text and the handling of images are explained in detail. Advice is also given on work progression and print management. Designing books is a visual task and is best demonstrated with visual examples. Book Typography contains over a thousand examples and illustrations showing typographic principals put into practice - from the smallest detail of punctuation to flat plans of entire books. All the samples come from published works and each is labeled with the font used, its size and leading. Additional information and comment is provided in the side notes. Book Typography defines the industry's technical terminology in the chapter, "The Basic Terms of the Trade". An extensive glossary is also included. It is an essential guide for students and recent graduates hoping to work in book design and publishing. Book Typography covers every aspect of the book designer's task, providing an invaluable reference to editors, copy-editors, proofreaders, production managers and publishers.
