    Design professionals AND self publishers need this book!, Aug. 19 2016

    I’m a graphic designer and production artist with over 30 years of experience and I know enough to know that I don’t know everything—especially about self publishing. Before buying “Book Design Made Simple” I would search the internet each time I had a question about best practices for book design or what content needed to be included in the front matter of a book. Those days are gone. I keep “Book Design Made Simple” on the side of my desk when I’m working on a book project. It is THE best reference manual I have ever used and worth TWICE what I paid for it. I highly recommend the book for both self publishers and design professionals—you won’t be disappointed.

    At last a guide that I can use and make sense of Adobe InDesign with. Easy to use and follow and use as a reference. Some things have changed with InDesign since the publication of this book but not enough to confuse. I am so glad I purchased this book it has helped me so much!

    Whether you are dreaming of publishing your first book or whether you are accomplished at book design, this promises to become THE bible on book design. Book Design Made Simple covers so much more than the basics. From setting up the required software to practical advice and visuals of design and typography, how to obtain an ISBN and create a bar code to sending rock-solid press-ready files to the printer, this 500-page volume is truly a ‘must have’.
