Description

An essential guide to elegant, versatile layout design

The grid — a seemingly simple collection of evenly-spaced lines — is the foundation of modern print design rooted in the ancient world. The Grid: A Modular System for the Design and Production of Newspapers, Magazines, and Books explores the features and complexities of the grid to help designers work more effectively within it. Heavily illustrated to demonstrate the grid's flexibility through its many permutations, this guide is an essential examination of the principles of proportion in layout design.
