Open Access Graduate Research Paper
What is book design? Why do some books have colored or illustrated endpapers, illuminated letters and decorative borders? Is it necessary for children to know what book design is and how it is used in order to comprehend fully the stories they read? Is an awareness of book design something that parents should have when choosing a book for their child? If book design is not an important aspect in determining which books children and adults choose to read, and also to their understanding of the story, why do publishers spend so much time and money on this aspect? Why not just write 'good' stories?
