As we observed in the Preface (you did read the Preface, didn't you? After all the work we put into it? Listen, it's not nearly as dull as it looks....) you're probably eager to unravel the Mysteries of Page Design. Lire la première page

The difference was in the practicality and wealth of information in this book. It was practical in the way that it covered the current newspaper design trends without diverting to an oddball discussion on past trends, like I've seen in other handbooks and journalism texts. It was practical in that it really didn't discuss useless theory. It displayed and demonstrated through extemely well-designed graphic examples.
The wealth of information contained by The Newspaper Designer's Handbook was equal to its practicality. The book covered every part of design that I could imagine, from cutlines to infographics. And it covered all of the elements with detail.
And, unlike most of my college texts, it was easy to understand. It seemed that each and every page had an example of the current topic along with detailed explanations on the how's and why's of newspaper design.
So, even though it's sad to say, I do remember a few nights that this book beat going out. That's one of the reasons that I'm buying the next edition. You see, I hate spending my own money to buy classroom books that may not used often, but I know this book is worth it. My newspaper students really need something like this. A lot.
I've used the publication several times to justify design decisions to my colleagues with great success.
Also, the book doesn't waste unnecessary space describing design basics. While an absolute novice could make great use of this book, it's certainly not 'over-simple' for a professional designer. It's just an example of an author who really knows his stuff and happens to be an excellent communicator.
FOR GOOD DESIGN ... GET IT!!
If you want to know more about layout and design, but don't want to read a book -- try this one. After reading the first two pages, you'll forget you don't want to read a book and will be spellbound. How many textbooks can claim that?
