There are many concepts to consider when designing your own book, such as page and chapter layout, audience appeal, and cover artwork. This course will help you gain a better grasp on these concepts. Throughout this course, participants will gain an understanding of current industry standards when creating press-ready layouts for various types of bookbinding, including saddle-stitch books, coil bound books, and soft- and hard-cover perfect bound books. By focusing on page layout, typeface selection, column structure, and chapter design, each participant will create professional quality books and compelling book cover designs through Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign. Participants will also learn about different types of paper selection for cover and internal pages, as well as processes to calculate spine dimensions for perfect bound books. We recommend a general understanding of basic Photoshop skills for this course.
This course is appropriate for ages 14+.
