Desktop publishing has long become simply publishing. The world of making books is now on your desktop with a computer and printer. Whether reproduced by offset press, or printed on your desktop, making your own book is now as rich with possibilities as your own creativity.
This seminar explores digital bookmaking for paper-based books using digital tools to fulfil your imagination. The Great Central Valley: California's Heartland will be a project example, and Steve's Making a Digital Book the starting point textbook. Handmade digital portfolios will also be discussed.
From concept, to creation, printing and binding, this overview of the process should prove valuable to anyone considering digital technology as a means of making books.
