MAKING BOOKS, DESIGN IN BRITISH PUBLISHING SINCE 1945.
The profound changes in Britain since 1945 have inevitably reflected on the art of publishing. In this work, Alan Bartram sets the current publishing scene in the context of the best practice of the last fifty years. While emphasizing that a satisfying book is the result of teamwork between the author, editor, designer, and printer, Bartram is mainly concerned with its design, and the creative process that ends with a book that is not only elegant, but has high standards of reliability. Much has changed, but such elementary requirements for good bookmaking are as relevant today as they ever were. Well-illustrated. Corners bumped.
