Title: An Investigation into the development of a software tool for design of book pages
Author: Bennett, David
Abstract: A method of designing a readable book that does not require the user to have expert knowledge of book layout is studied and implemented by designing a computer software program. Traditional book design techniques are researched and the findings are used to plan the software's workflow and functionality. The concept is based on the use of pre-defined typographic options that the user can choose from to meet the particular needs of an individual book project. Other features guide the user through the book design process using a step-by-step approach. A working demonstration version of the soft ware concept is developed and presented to a group of graphics-industry professionals who have various degrees of graphic and book design experience. Their feedback is reported using a questionnaire. Upon evaluating the responses, the software concept is found to be a very successful solution to the problem.
