The art of book layout and design

If you’re writing your book in Microsoft Word or a similar software package, you’ll know that creating a great story and creating a great layout are two different tasks. Most of the self-published authors we work with have printed copies of their books available to buy, and so it’s essential that the page layout be created to a professional standard. To make a book comfortable to read; effortless in fact, consideration needs to be given to text tracking, leading, font size, style, chapter breaks, margins, contents, front matter pages, index, glossary and footnotes. There may also be to graphs, diagrams, and illustrations where necessary. What may seem like simple case of changing the page size to a standard paperback format, can often be a complex project in its own right.
