BOOK DESIGN AND LAYOUT SERVICES
Book design and layout needs to be professionally done when publishing your book whether it is an information handbook or a business ebook. With such a wide variety of literature available you want your content to look its best, be easily read, and attract your reader.
When does a ‘brochure’ become a ‘book’?
The category of ‘book’ and ‘brochure’ can be blurred, both inform and educate but a ‘brochure’ is ultimately a promotional piece of literature. A book can be any size to fit your requirements, it can have as many pictures as you require or none depending on what the budget allows.
If you have taken the time to write your novel or your content you must do it justice. A professional book design and layout will make all the difference when marketing and promoting it. The essence of a good layout is consistency and flow. The treatment of the text must be uniform throughout. A style guide should be created to adhere to making the formatting easy and clear for the reader. For example all main and sub headings must be the same size and font. Captions and footnote styles should be set and ‘pull-outs’ like quotes and testimonials should have their own style. Above all these should be chosen at the beginning of the design as to change part way through could be costly.
Different books will be treated in slightly different ways depending on whether they are to be published online, in particular if kindle versions are required there are options for e-books that must be decided upon before work can commence.
Book design and layout for a hardback or paperback novel, history, biography will be very different from a coffee table book but the parameters are the same, consistency and style.
