Book layout, or what...
Instead, I read a Jean Paul Sartre book. Months ago I had decided to design a paperback in the fashion of book layout 60 years ago, but with a relatively modern font. The image above is a second draft of a page layout from the paperback I am designing.
Below is a book printed in 1964. Notice the beautiful wide margins. Like a graphic design nerd, I pulled out a ruler and measured the margins--one inch on the outside margins. The font is 10 points with 14 to 15 point leading. This page layout is timelessly elegant. Most of non-fiction books I design include a tribute if not blatant ripoff of this page layout format.
Now I have to dose up on some more OTC meds and herbal teas to kick this head cold and finish this project.
