Biographie de l'auteur

Tim Harrower has been an award-winning editor, designer and columnist at such newspapers as the Times-Union (Rochester, New York) and The Oregonian (Portland, Oregon). He became a journalist back in the `80s after his first career choice-beloved rock 'n' roll superlegend-went down the tubes. He currently consults on redesigns, lectures on journalism, and maintains a dog-and-frog ranch at the foot of an Oregon volcano. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Couverture à spirales .

Première phrase
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

Great handbook for students and new designers 16 août 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I actually used this book as a undergrad. I have to admit that, like most harried college students, I usually opted to go out with friends when given the choice to go out or read a textbook. This book definitely gave my friends a serious challenge.

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.

The BEST book on newspaper design! 6 janvier 1999
Par Dan Warne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
This book is an absolutely essential guide for anyone planning a newspaper design. I bought it while re-designing our company staff newspaper and found its graphic examples and easy to follow examples excellent.
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!!

I've read it & recommended it MANY times! 3 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I love this book. My dad owns it -- he took a class by the author -- and I have borrowed it several times, as well as recommended it to friends -- all of whom have been impressed by the humorous and intelligent approach Harrower takes to newspaper design.
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?

A must for any high school newspaper! 26 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I have used this book for three years in my high school journalism curriculum. It seems there is nothing Mr. Harrower does not know about designing a newspaper. He gives multitude examples of layout, but also gives tips on overall design, photos, advertising, the list goes on. My fiance is teaching journalism this year and this book will tops on his birthday list! Note: the material is a bit above the high school level, but his ideas are adaptable and his suggestions fundamental. Enjoy!

Useful but Over Priced - Poor Binding - Worthless CD 23 novembre 2004
Par RG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I give this book 4 stars on content alone. But the publisher gets failing grades for price, binding, paper stock, and included CD. With the thousands of books I own, I never had to complain about binding and paper stock until now. I recommend purchasing the hardcover version. I purchased this manual to help me start a local newspaper. I searched through the Internet and there seemed to be few book resources like this one. But there are some good news and bad news related to this book. You decide for yourself. The good news is that this is a wonderful book. It has a little bit of everything. It has lots of examples, defines everything you need to know about a newspaper. It even includes some history. The book makes a big deal of the color added to this edition. I would have suggested it be added several editions ago. The fifth edition even includes a good web design section and a poorly crafted CD. The bad news is that this book is over priced - probably since it has a monopoly on the subject matter. If there was competition the value would be more like $20 at best. The binding is spiral type and the paper is on the thin side so the pages will bend and tear easily. The cover is heavy stock paper as you would expect in any soft covered book. I don't know about you, but when I spend $60 on a book I expect it to be of the highest quality in binding, cover, and paper. I expected the CD to be loaded with all kinds of goodies, examples, and probably a digital version of the book (would have been very handy). After reviewing the CD, it is nothing less than worthless. It looks like a last minute attempt to grab and entice you to buy. The resources provided from the website is not even worth mentioning. Hopefully, after writing this review the author and publisher will take their customers more seriously, especially when they are paying a high premium. The author has much to be proud of with the content inside this book. But when I contacted him he made fun of the fact I was complaining about the paper stock. I guess he does not care about quality.
