Spring Book Design

Whether you’re new to publishing or a seasoned publisher, your book journey begins at Spring Book Design.

 

An author has a story; a book has a story; and the design of a book has a story.

Developing a truly readable book is the primary goal of good book design. The way it feels in the hand, and its size and weight, all contribute to how content is presented to the reader. Creating a readable book means paying close attention to the standards of good page design, including font selection, typographic controls, proportion, white space, consistency, flow, and decoration. Combining the effects of these elements helps capture the energy and spirit of the author so the book feels personal to your reader. Each page receives careful attention. It isn't as easy as it might sound! In fact, many of the best designs are intentionally so subtle that the reader may not even notice the design. But that's the point. We want readers to focus first and foremost on reading.
