Book Design Progress

Using my critiques as a checklist for next time:

  1. Consider content. What has it’s own formatting? (By that, I mean, are there documents in what you are designing that come a certain way, with the author signed at the bottom– that’s always flush right.)
  2. Consider non-content. Do not number pages with nothing on them.
  3. Decide information hierarchy. Small Caps or All Caps but not both. Simplify your system.
  4. In book design, right side is dominant.
  5. Look for widows. Don’t let those words be so lonely.
  6. Get the best resolution you can for your scanned in images.
