Free-of-charge thumbnail templates for authors and illustrations
As I was asked to create my first illustrated book (I'm Bored) and I began to research textbook designs, I was upset. For example, I knew a default book had 32 pages, but I found that these 32 pages could also contain the cover page and other non-story pages.
Also, some ledgers had the history on the right, while others began on the other. Number of pages in a book of pictures differs depending on publishing house and projects. However, if you submit a storybook drogue or an outsourced storybook miss, I suggest you start with the default 32 pages.
When you really need the additional space, go for 40...but keep in mind that, more pages has a book that is more costly it to print. What is it? This is because the number of pages in textbooks tends to be in steps of 8 due to the way they are reprinted; see resource at the end of this article for more information.
If some of you find them useful in your own brain storming processes, see below for the informational presentations I have made for myself. First two are artwork I used to brain-storm stories for storybooks. They are intentionally small so I can compress the whole page to one page to better see the whole visible area.
I' ve made the last two brain storming papers when I have an idea of how to show a certain distribution. However, this template will help me research different ways to exemplify a dissemination and NOT just do the first thing that comes to my head. Some other places where you can find more textbook layouts and useful information:
The An Illustrator's Guide To Creating My Pictures Book - von Meghan McCarthy. Not a template, but a good survey for beginners. Picturebook dummy, picturebook construction: You know your layout from Tara Lazar. Explanations of the independent and coloured textbook-layout. Editorial Anonymous.
