GRAPHIC DESIGN

To us at The Book Designers, the layout of the pages inside a book is just as important as its cover design. After all, the pages are what people experience as they read the book. This tutorial provides a basic step-by-step process for designing and laying out a book that’s driven by its text.

There are hundreds of fantastic graphic design books out there, offering words of wisdom, design inspiration, and refreshers on key principles and techniques. Whether you’re looking to swot up on design theory or recharge your creative batteries, we’ve curated the best titles here, in this essential reading list.
