Product description

"In Aspects of Contemporary Book Design, Richard Hendel has invited book and journal designers he admires to describe how they approach and practice thier craft. Blending his roles as designer, author, interviewer, and editor, Hendel reaches across both sides of the drafting tables--both real and virtual--to create a book that will appeal to aspiring and seasoned book designers as well as writers, editors, and readers who want to know more about the visual presentation of the written word. A unique, title page-to-index guide to the ways that professional British American designers think about design, this book continues the conversation that began with Hendel's 1998 classic, On Book Design."--Book flap.

Review quote

"Rich Hendel begins "Aspects of Contemporary Book Design" by floating the proposition that 'these may be the final days of book design.' Don't believe him. For he then proceeds to prove himself wrong, chapter after chapter. Throughout this learned and insightful series of interviews, Hendel and his fellow designers both reaffirm and celebrate the enduring role played by design in uniting the ideas of authors with the enthusiasms of readers. Along the way we enjoy stories and lessons served up by some of the best designers in publishing. The result is a great tour of the very lively art of book design."--Peter Dougherty, director, Princeton University Press
