Typesetting and Page Composition

Page composition isn't just a matter of inserting copy from a text file and wrapping it around pictures and adding chapter names and titles. Typesetting is where the really invisible work comes in during the bookmaking process. Good typesetters pay attention to:

  • Word and letter spacing 
  • Typographic and design elements
  • Hyphenation
  • Spread balancing
  • Widow and orphan control
  • Text / art integration

Here are complicated, image-heavy 4-color books composed by BNGO.

Here are books with fewer images but still-complex type treatments and layouts.
