Feeling Bookish…or My Brief Attempts at Book Design Part I

For my Applications for Print Publishing course, we were asked to design a book as our final project. Allowed to use any source of text for the content, and if it isn’t apparent from the title, I used this blog, this calming, wonderful little blog, and turned it into a miniature, 40-page book. I will be posting pieces of my project over the course of the week.

This, my darlings, is the cover (I printed it on off-white cover stock, the fonts are Gabriola and Georgia):

Note: I finished The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake (yes, it was quick, right?). I loved it, but I’ll be posting more about it on a later date.

    haha I know…I printed it on an off-white text stock. It was saddle-stitched, really thin. Just for introduction to book design…not so serious.

    Publishers HATE white books. It gets dirty way too easily, then they can't sell the copies that have dirt on them.

    It's about the money, you know?
