Today we’re having a lecture on Book Design and on Grids. It’s somewhat of an overview/inspiration to get you thinking more about what you will do with your book. The readings to complete over the next week and a half are:

“You Can Judge a Book by its Cover,” from HOW Magazine. In the Box.

There is also an updated calendar schedule in the Box. Don’t forget that your outlines and your initial comps (3 sets) are due Monday after Spring Break. Ironically, that is also the Ides of March. So, avoid critique assassination and come prepared!
