Squeezed in another couple of shoots today for my project. Now have 76 final selects for the book. Slowly realising that that's quite a lot of images to finish. Still got several prime candidates in mind to contribute to the book too. Spent some time this evening working through Adobe InDesign CS3 Classroom in a Book to learn the basics of InDesign operation. Seems quite similar to the rest of the Creative Suite tools and whole lot less painful than I remember FrameMaker being, which is a good sign. Also found a set of InDesign templates for the various Blurb.com books. I plan on using one of these for the layout of my SoFoBoMo book so that I can potentially target a final hard copy via blurb.com. Just downloaded those and will dive in to working out a template and page design soon. Also useful is this detail on the full bleed page and cover sizes for blurb books. After a bit of a play around I've released that I know how technically to put the book together, I've got no idea whatsoever on how to design a book, or even really what a book looks like. Any suggestions ? I might just resort to copying elements from books I already have and like. Mark Hobson's post has some useful pointers.
