Award-winning book designer Hendel sets out the approaches and considerations that contribute to creating a fine volume. He includes such variables as the book's size and shape, typeface for text and display, the arrangement of type on the page, and typographical details for all parts of the book within manufacturing and budget limits. He uses two of his own designs as case studies. Then eight other designers offer their views. A brief glossary is included. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
