Book Design!

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Jacket design, fonts, typesetting, paper types, sizes. Anything to do with book design and layout here.
Sometimes, a good design, font, or typesetting job can make or break an edition of a book.

If this sort of thing makes a difference to you, here's a place to go on and on about it. Content? Books have content? Here's where we go on and on about kerning , gutters, and 10 pound stock!

Velvet varnishes, leather, newsprint, and crocheted bookmarks may also be discussed!

Vellum, parchment, papyrus, and cuneiform also welcome.

Have fun!
