Book layout - where to start?
The layout of the book always begins with preliminary sketches in electronic form: the format of the publication, the approximate number of pages are determined, the types of fonts for the main text and headings are selected. Before making the layout of the book, its structure and content must be determined, then all the texts must be prepared and verified, illustrations, photographs, and the necessary graphic elements must be carefully selected. It is important to remember that the book, its layout, design and especially the quality of the layout, are intended for long-term use by readers.

Book layout - how is it done?
Layout of a book is largely a technical process, but, like design development, layout of a book acts as an element of the creative process. The layout of a book requires a high level of professionalism and literacy from the layout designer, a sense of harmony and style, because the future of the book largely depends on the layout of the book. When typesetting a book, a layout designer needs publishing experience and a full range of knowledge about printing processes.
High-quality layout of a book always requires special precision and accuracy from the layout designer. These qualities in the layout of the book are primarily necessary for the exact observance of the technical parameters of the page templates and spreads of the book, the so-called master pages. Accurate adherence to the parameters of the master pages allows you to give the pages of the book uniformity, to show a high level of work on the layout of the book, to increase its readability and visual perception.
The layout of the book also requires the layout designer to be particularly accurate in color correction of illustrations, which together must be made in a single color gamut, uniform quality and meet the requirements of high-quality offset printing standards. Accurate and competent layout of the book, its internal pages and spreads, is carried out in such a way that the reader can quickly immerse himself in an easy and fascinating reading.
In conclusion, during the layout of the book, the final proofreading of the texts is carried out and each of the pages of the book is checked together with the editor and proofreader in order to eliminate errors and shortcomings. When the layout of the book is completed and its proofreading has been carried out, the files are prepared for offset printing.
