'Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.' Antoine de Saint-Exupery - A quote from the book that I found really interesting. There are quotes throughout that add to the ideas of layout.
The book is also printed on a few different stocks of paper, it explains how this affects the way the book has to be laid out so that it is printed correctly. The imposition plan- the arrangement of pages.
A useful book for questions on layout.
Perfect contents and pictures. Could buy them all...
