Before planning the layout of my book, I wanted to find out about traditions and techniques used in publication design. For this I read Editorial Design - Yolanda Zappaterra and Notes on Book Design - Derek Birdsall.

 

I also looked at publication design, past and present, in a number of books (see above) to help guide my planning, provide inspiration and investigate the diversity in text and image combinations. Any layouts or font/colour ideas that appealed to me I photographed and have complied in the slideshow opposite. I have found this to be a very useful exercise in narrowing down the style and feel of the book I want to produce.
