AbeBooks' Reading Copy

Textbook design

As the second semester of school starts up for students (as indicated by the full transit buses and the spike in sales for textbooks on AbeBooks), I found an article about the passing of Tom Suzuki – a designer who changed the way textbooks are created and designed.

“…he introduced a storyboard approach adapted from magazine-production techniques. With each book’s content precisely plotted, it was possible to commission photography and illustrations while the authors were still writing. He developed novel ideas for images, like designing three-dimensional models and having professional stylists stage editorial photography.”
