This course will focus on the role of design in the book publishing process. Specifically, the course explores the conversion of information into a well-designed product that is both structured and formatted with the nature of the content and intended audience in mind. With emphasis on current technology, this course will introduce students to the design process and how it relates to the editorial, production, and marketing aspects of publishing. After a brief overview of the history of bookmaking, students will examine the components of book design: typography, composition, page layout, production, and printing. The use of typographic systems, templates, grid systems, and current layout programs will be also discussed. Students will also explore the varying formats of a book project: both printed and electronic. Students will learn how to manage the cover and interior design process and work with designers.
