  • Book Layout

    Aright so my professor assigned the most vague project on book layouts. We had to find a classical play's script, import it to in-design, and then design a "classical" book style layout with the entire script, and then create a modern style layout, something we came up with. Any ideas on what this guy is lookin for??? My guess would be analyzing size, leading, and margins from pages of old books and creating something similar but Im not sure. What do you think?? Now he didnt post any guidlines for this so I am lost!

    Sounds like he's leaving a lot to your creative juices. (don't go there mac.finn) I think your guess sounds accurate. Have fun with it!!

      ^ true.

      Could you approach him and ask for clarification? That way if he tells you that he wants you to "just be creative with it", it's one thing, but if he does have something specific in mind he should be able to point you in the right direction.

      And welcome to the forum.

        I would suggest use of the golden proportion in determining your margins for the old-school design

        Just my two cents.
        It sounds like a great idea until you have to cut 200 felt circles with an 1/8" circular exacto knife ...
