    • A Little Glossary of Book Printing Terminology | lillianwebbgraphic

      1/5 Shop now! If you have hired a book designer or are thinking about it then this resource is a must! All my clients receive a copy of this book for free when we work together. FAQ What is this product? This is an introductory guide for the novice book creator. It is intended to give clarity to the book making process in an easy to understand and friendly manner. Hopefully this will assist in communication with the book designer / printer so that the process can go smoothly and a great final product can be achieved. If you have recently embarked on creating a book of any kind you may have already realised there is a bit more to the process than initially expected. Common terminology is given both a written and pictorial definition presented as simply and clearly as possible. Rather than alphabetical order, the book moves through the definitions in a sequence that mimics the steps in book creation. Once the mechanics of book making are explained the information moves to the content presented on the page of the book including things like image quality and typographic arrangement. All of this is relayed in a way that is appropriate for someone who knows nothing about design or book construction. The interactive nature of the book means that you can move from one connecting idea to another quickly. The look and layout of the book is simple with a fairly casual and friendly approach in both wording and graphics. How will this book be helpful to me? This information will primarily help in understand printing terminology. It may also help you choose the book format that is appropriate for your publication (or assist in understanding your designers choice). The layout of this book as a glossary gives definitions to each word associated with the printing and book designing process. The single word definitions are then built on in a logical sequence and then expanded upon for a full understanding of how they all work together to create a book. Who is the product suitable for? If you are not a book designer or professional printer and have written a book of any kind that you intend to publish or give away, then this resource will help you. If you are a student or a designer of any other sort who is interested in knowing more about the book making process than this may be beneficial to you as well. If you are a writer, editor or illustrator who works in the publishing industry but hasn't ever made their own book then this may be a helpful tool for you as well. What this book isn’t. This book doesn’t contain publishing advice (eg. approaching publishers, finding your target market, etc.) or tutorials on making your own books by hand. It is about the elements that go into making a book that will be most generally common in a commercial setting. My hope is that by being informed about your options before you embark on your book-making journey the process will go smoother and you will come out of it with a product you are proud of. If I am a printer or designer will this book teach me anything? I don't want to rule the possibility out completely but if you have already studied or worked as a printer or book designer then this book will probably be too basic for you. It may help you to refer your clients to this publication to show them during meetings. Instead of doing the heavy lifting of explaining the book making process each time you have a new client, a handy pre-prepared guide may be beneficial. Will this book give me all the information I need to design a book and send it to print myself? In short, no. The book explains each stage of the process but not how to do it. If you are a graphic designer with a working knowledge of Adobe programs then this information will give you more of an understanding of how to design a book but not how to execute each stage in the process. What was the inspiration behind this book? This book came about as a series of info sheets and workbooks that I have used with my own clients that gradually formed into something more individual. Every element I decided to include in the book came from the most common questions I have been asked and the most misunderstood elements of book design. All my clients get a version of the book for free when we work together. Similar Products to this Book 0.itemzero + Maiadouro; Authors: Rúben R.

      Documents These documents are here to help you when submitting content to me for design. Please download! SubmittingTextforDesign_FreeDownload_©L Submitting Text The text document must be completely finished before we commence designing. Any large text changes after design has begun will be considered a design change and therefore result in an extra fee. All text must be submitted in a reflow-able text document (Eg Word, Google docs, Pages). Submit spelling and grammatical corrections in the format as follows - Page Number (mistake appears on), Line number (mistake appears on), Original text as appears, Correction to insert (ready to copy into document) Do not include hyphenation yourself within the writing to break up your words from one line to another. Automatic hyphenation within your document will not be a problem but manually implemented hyphens will have to all be taken out for the final work (this doesn’t apply to grammatical hyphenation). Do not manually implement spaces in-between lines of text. If you want to have double spacing in your work then adjust these settings in the MS Words Line Spacing option and not by hitting an extra return/enter key. Submitting Images SubmittingImagesforDesign_FreeDownload_ Images are easiest to submit as Jpegs. Image files must be submitted individually as separate files (not as a part of any other document). Ensure that they are set to maximum quality. Images must be at least 300ppi (pixels per inch) to come out clearly in print. If the image is 300ppi but it is blurry it will be blurry in print also. All your image files must be named and the naming should follow this pattern below – NameofImage_Pageappearing Example - happyface_P18 International Standard Paper Size Paper_Sizes(International_Standard)_Free Submitting Measurements SubmittingMeasurementsforDesign_FreeDown A handy guide to help remember paper sizes.
