This completely updated edition of a classic guide shows a new generation of editors and designers how to make their publications sing! Readers will find a compendium of practical tips for a happy marriage between content and form, helping story and design reinforce each other and create pages irresistible to readers. Brimming with hundreds of black and white and colour illustrations, chapters cover the confines of what the editor/ designer team controls; the fundamentals of verbal-visual teamwork; the relationship of image size to story impact; problems and solutions for matters of columns and grids, margins, spacing, captions, pictures, diagrams, boxes, size and contrast, text type, symmetry and asymmetry, covers and colour; and much more. This is a book for designers looking to improve their products, publishers who realize that their products need a competitive edge, and writers and editorial directors looking to give their work enhanced meaning.
