4.0 out of 5 stars Insightful, 21 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Basics Design: Layout (Paperback)
A very good overview of the topic of layout. The book explains many terms that are used within layout and the examples of layouts throughout the entire book help you to realise how the particular layouts are used professionally. It guides you around the principles of layout, reinforces that the layout is best changed to its purpose and shouldn't be stuck to stringently if this stifles the piece fo work, layouts can be expressive and show off the work to its highest potential.

'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.
