CBK 6100. Layout & Design of the Book. 3 Credits.
This course provides an opportunity for visual artists from all backgrounds to combine images with text, to sequence existing content, to expand their typographic options, and to explore publishing alternatives beyond hand-made limited editions. It will cover type selection and typesetting, page grid systems and production methods for a variety of layout options, including handmade as well as commercially produced books. We will test several online publishing services, bypassing the limitations of their proprietary software by using InDesign for design and typesetting and exporting the final layouts as PDFs. Image formats, color modes, and color correction will be covered as needed. This course is open to MA/Art and the Book Students.
