Determine the margins -all margins are the same size -consider how you’re going to bind your book Ex. Saddle stitching: stapling the middle -generous outer margin so nothing gets cut off Ex. Perfect bound: each page is glued together and held together by the cover pages -inner margin thick because the pages don’t lay flat <outer margins ^ ^ inner margins 2. Column Widths -too many columns can create too much freedom -normal amount is a 2-3 column grid -the thinner the column, the harder it is for the text to fit naturally -there’s no rule that the column widths have to be the same size Ex. -the column width changing should inform the reader what the content is Ex. Main Text captions… 2 columns of text or text box and image Columns -short column of words mean a faster read -novels- text goes across, slower read -newspapers- faster read on the thinner column widths -ex.
