From mass-market publications to glossy coffee table and exclusive artist's books, Book-Art explores both the creative inspiration and the logistics behind the work.
Showcasing the most captivating examples of book design, alongside insightful interviews with designers, Book-Art explores solutions for creating impact, directing readers through layers on information, and providing a usable publication and desirable object.
It examines the use of colour, artwork, and typography to achieve successful covers and interior design; utilising principles of information design; creating a three- dimensional element through the use of pop-ups, fold outs, and inserts; and, adding value through the opportune use of printing and finishing methods.
