Making Books: Design in British Publishing Since 1945
The profound changes in British life since 1945 have inevitably been reflected in the world of book publishing. In this book, Alan Bartram sets the current publishing scene in the context of the best practice of the last 50 years. While emphasising that a satisfying book is the result of teamwork between author, editor, designer and printer, he is mainly concerned with their design, and the creative process that ends with a book which is not only elegant, but has high standards of readability.
