Indie Publishing presents basic information about publishing your own book, whether informally for friends and family, or for more formal purposes. Packed with full-colour illustrations, this visually driven book presents examples of independently produced poetry, fiction, picture books, artist's portfolios, exhibition catalogues, and more. It explores basic design principles such as scale, pacing and typography, along with commentary on how to create effective and intriguing book covers, title pages and layouts, as well as explanations of a variety of bookmaking techniques and processes. The focus on design sets this book apart from other publish-it-yourself manuals.
