Making books look good

Walt Shiel in View from the Publishing Trenches explains what goes into making a book. It's a great explanation demonstrating that it's more than just printing up a manuscript.

WS: Book design requires an analysis of the manuscript, its tone, and its intended audience. And a review of many other factors...Some self-publishers cringe at the prices quoted for book design and typesetting. That’s usually because they don’t understand the amount of knowledge and craftsmanship that makes the difference between an acceptable book and a beautifully designed and typeset book...More.
