Product Description

Review

"One of the things I have really enjoyed about AVA's books is the selection of images and the various types of paper employed. Not only do your books house valuable content, the content is presented well with great photography - the angle shots, close-uos, etc. I currently use AVA's Basics Design: Format and Print and Finish for my two senior production courses. The heavy use of images with tight definitions and commentary appeal to the students and the type of examples selected by the authors inspire stronger design solutions." Elsi Vassdal Ellis, Western Washington University, USA.

Format: Paperback
This book gives detailed information on how to work within a given format and also how to decide on and develop a format for your own print media and web design. I found the examples and case studies fascinating; covering the spectrum of books, magazines, posters, objects, screen and brochures. The authors provided plenty of details for all the examples, which I have found useful when further researching an image of interest.

great book in a series of great books. I have bought a couple of these books now. Inspire and inform me as I have gone through my final half of my design degree. I wish I had known about these earlier.
