To design and release your own book by Ellen Lupton

Disdainfully called a "vanity publisher", the self-published works at last take their place alongside the accepted independent genres such as literature, films and theatre. Independent authoring is a handy way to build and distribute print works, regardless of your backgrounds, skills and ambitions. This will help you realise any size project and any size budgets, from conventional book-making skills to the more sophisticated manufacturing processes needed to make large quantities of hardback book.

The particular emphasis of indie publishing on the graphic layout of textbooks makes it one of a kind among publish-it-yourself handbooks. The reader is guided little by little through the making of a textbook to give it a sense of personality, consistency and authenticity. Each example is explained with basic layout rules such as scaling, bleed, tempo and type, as well as comments for creating actual covers, table of content, captioning and more.

The aim of Indie Publishing is to provide the reader with inspiration in the form of samples of printing jobs that are similar to those that they could do themselves. Photographs, artist's portfolios, catalogues, poetry books, novels and zines are just a few samples of his work. Independent publishing deals with the important commercial issues of independent publishing - from how and why you should get an ibn number to the creation of advertising material and the use of the web to promote your work.

Complemented by a curatorial presentation of the most interesting illustrations of independently published works from the modern world, presented in full colour. When you have contents to divide and want to give it a clean and tidy shape, this volume will initiate your design and motivate you until the inks dry.

Independent publishing is the 8th in our bestselling Design Briefs range, which has more than 100,000 titles distributed around the world.
