This is the final project for Queens College – CUNY’s Basic Design Software 191 course. In order to gain familiarity and fluency in the industry standard, InDesign, students create a printable book. Students learn a basic understanding of layout and pre-press. The project uses spec requirements from blurb.com, so at the end of this course, students have the option of printing a professional, sellable product.
Basic specs: 8″ x 10″ perfect bound 20 page book, with additional softcover (with or without flaps).
The following book examples show a cover (back and front, on one-cover stock) followed by 4 example spread pages (as per printers’ specs). All photos contained within books are original works by students.
