How is a book designed? What do book designers think about as they turn manuscripts into printed books? In this unique and appealing volume, the award-winning book designer Richard Hendel and eight other talented book designers discuss their approaches and working methods. They consider the problems posed by a wide range of projects--selection of a book's size and shape, choice of typeface for text and display, arrangement of type on the page, and determination of typographic details for all parts of the book within manufacturing and budget limitations. As omnipresent as books are, few readers are aware of the "invisible" craft of book designing. The task a book designer faces is different from that faced by other designers. The challenge, says Hendel, isn't to create something different or pretty or clever but to discover how to best serve the author's words. Hendel does not espouse a single philosophy of design or offer a set of instructions; he shows that there are many ways to design a book. In detailed descriptions of the creative process, Hendel and the eight other designers, who represent extensive experience in trade and scholarly publishing in the United States and Great Britain, show how they achieve the most effective visual presentation of words, offering many examples to illustrate their choices. Written not only for seasoned and novice book designers, this book will fascinate others in publishing as well as all readers and authors who are curious to know how books end up looking the way they do.

In a career spanning more than forty years, Derek Birdsall has achieved renown as a leading book designer in Britain. This practical and inspirational book distils a lifetime’s professional experience. It presents and discusses nearly fifty books he has designed, showing 360 spreads and covers, all in full color and to scale. The designs range from Penguin paperback covers in the 1960s to a recent complete redesign of The Church of England’s book of Common Worship. Among Birdsall’s projects are award-winning art catalogues, catalogues raisonn� on such major artists as Mark Rothko and Georgia O’Keeffe, and books on wine, chess, astronomy, architecture, and fine paper. Birdsall discusses and illustrates the process of book design, from brief to deadline (which he calls the designer’s muse). He includes specimen settings of his favorite text faces as well as an innovative metric grid system for designing books. In addition, he lists books he himself has found useful or inspiring. For every reader curious about the design or production of books, this is a uniquely informative and instructive book.

In this manifestly practical book, Richard Hendel has invited book and journal designers he admires to describe how they approach and practice the craft of book design. Designers with interesting and varied careers in the field, who work with contemporary technology in today’s publishing environment, describe their methods of managing the challenges presented by specific types of books, presented side by side with numerous images from those books. Not an instruction manual but a unique, on-the-job, title page–to–index guide to the ways that professional British and American designers think about design, Aspects of Contemporary Book Design continues the conversation that began with Hendel’s 1998 classic, On Book Design. Contributing designers who focus on solving problems posed by nonfiction, fiction, cookbooks, plays, poetry, illustrated books, and journals include Cherie Westmoreland, Amy Ruth Buchanan, Mindy Basinger Hill, Nola Burger, Ron Costley, Kristina Kachele, Barbara Wiedemann, and Sue Hall, as well as a host of other designers, typesetters, editors, and even an author. Abbey Gaterud attempts to define the conundrum that the e-book presents to designers; Kent Lew describes the evolution of his Whitman typeface family; Charles Ellertson reflects upon the vital relationship between the typesetter and the designer; and Sean Magee writes about the uneasy alliance between designers and editors. In an extended essay that is as frank and funny as it is illuminating, Andrew Barker takes the reader deep into the morass—excavating the fine, finer, and finest details of working through a series design. At the heart of this copiously illustrated book is the enduring need for design that clarifies the way for the reader, whether on the printed page or on the computer screen. Blending his roles as designer, author, interviewer, and editor, Hendel reaches across both sides of the drafting table—both real and virtual—to create a book that will appeal to aspiring and seasoned book designers as well as writers, editors, and readers who want to know more about the visual presentation of the written word.

Helmut Schmid (geboren 1942 in Ferlach/Österreich) studierte nach der Schriftsetzerausbildung an der Schule für Gestaltung in Basel. 1976 entwarf er das Kampagnezeichen für den SPD-Wahlkampf unter Helmut Schmidt. Nach den Stationen Düsseldorf, Berlin, Stockholm, Montreal und Vancouver lebt Helmut Schmid seit 1981 als freischaffender visueller Gestalter in Osaka. In seinen Entwürfen verbindet er auf einmalige Weise die japanische Tradition mit der westlichen Moderne. So ist etwa Schmids Silbenschrift Katakana Eru aus der japanischen Produktverpackung nicht mehr wegzudenken. Die vorliegende Monografie dokumentiert und analysiert alle wichtigen Arbeiten von 1961 bis heute: visuelle Basiskonzepte, Schriftzüge, Logos, Produkt- und Packungsidentitäten, Plakatund Buchgestaltungen. Sie schöpft aus den Ergebnissen eines mehrjährigen Forschungsprojektes am Fachbereich Design der Fachhochschule Düsseldorf. Helmut Schmids Werk wird damit endlich seinem Rang gemäß vorgestellt.

A hands-on book design students and designers alike will welcome. Elements of Design is a tribute to an exceptional teacher and a study of the abstract visual relationships that were her lifelong pursuit. Rowena Reed Kiostellow taught industrial design at Pratt Institute for more than fifty years and the designers she trained-and the designers they're training today-have changed the face of American design. This succinct, instructive, invaluable book reconstructs the series of exercises that led Kostellow's students from the manipulation of simple forms to the creation of complex solutions to difficult design problems. It includes her exercises and commentary along with selected student solutions, and concludes with examples of work from former students who became leaders in the field, including such well-known figures as Tucker Viemeister, Ralph Applebaum, Ted Muehling, and many others.

Doch dann, an einem der endlosen Sommertage, begegnet sie ihnen: den „Girls“. Das Haar, lang und unfrisiert. Die ausgefransten Kleider. Ihr lautes, freies Lachen. Unter ihnen ist auch die ältere Suzanne, der Evie verfällt. Mit ihnen zieht sie zu Russell, einem Typ wie Charles Manson, dessen Ranch tief in den Hügeln liegt. Gerüchte von Sex, wilden Partys, Einzelne, die plötzlich ausreißen.

An einem verschlafenen Sommertag des Jahres 1984 begegnet die junge Holly Sykes einer alten Frau, die ihr im Tausch für «Asyl» einen kleinen Gefallen tut. Jahrzehnte werden vergehen, bis Holly Sykes genau versteht, welche Bedeutung die alte Frau dadurch für ihre Existenz bekommen hat. Die Knochenuhren folgt den Wendungen von Holly Sykes’ Leben von einer tristen Kindheit am Unterlauf der Themse bis zum hohen Alter an Irlands Atlantikküste, in einer Zeit, da Europa das Öl ausgeht. Ein Leben, das gar nicht so ungewöhnlich ist und doch punktiert durch seltsame Vorahnungen, Besuche von Leuten, die sich aus dem Nichts materialisieren, Zeitlöcher und andere kurze Aussetzer der Gesetze der Wirklichkeit. Denn Holly – Tochter, Schwester, Mutter, Hüterin – ist zugleich die unwissende Protagonistin einer mörderischen Fehde, die sich in den Schatten und dunklen Winkeln unserer Welt abspielt – ja, sie wird sich vielleicht sogar als deren entscheidende Waffe erweisen. Metaphysischer Thriller, moralische Betrachtung und Chronik unseres selbstzerstörerischen Handelns – dieser kaleidoskopische Roman mit seiner Vielfalt von Themen, Schauplätzen und Zeiten birst vor Erfindungsreichtum und jener Intelligenz, die David Mitchell zu einem der herausragenden Autoren seiner Generation gemacht hat.

The Fundamentals of Design Management emphasizes the inter-disciplinary nature of design management, and as such is of relevance to those from a number of backgrounds: art and design, business, marketing or media. Design does not operate in isolation from other disciplines and professions. The book explicitly places the principles and processes of design within the context of a business or enterprise, considering the administrative, legal and financial implications of executing a design project.
