a friend of mine is an (indipendent) publisher and he is giving a series of lectures on how to make a book from start to finished product.
Having some books designed for him, he asked me if I could help out with the design section.
He specifically asked for some further readings for his students on the relationship between design and content and how one affects the other. Could be complete books, chunks of text or just simple quotes.
I’m a bit lost here, ideally I would recommend him some classic texts by classic designers but right now nothing comes to mind... can you help?
thanks omg, but this is rather about classic book making. His students will be, for example, curators that want to publish an art catalogue. They have the content at hand and he wants to raise awareness on how design decisions affect the content and vice versa (structure, appearance, etc.). Sorry I can’t be more precise, he wasn’t either. His goal is to prepare future editors to be more keen-eared to the solutions the designer proposes, to encourage them to a mutual process.
