I am a co-founder of Traife Buffet, a small press specializing in high-end limited edition books and subcontracting design and production of books, slip cases and presentation boxes for individuals and small presses. I work as a book designer and graphic artist. I am a long-time fan who is always willing to help out at conventions. In my spare time, I volunteer for "first readings" and continuity checks for some of my author friends.
|Fri||1200||Basics of Book Design and Publishing||There's nothing quite like reading (or holding) a really beautiful book. The cover design, interior illustrations, type face, layout, and even paper quality all contribute to the experience. What goes into creating a satisfyingly artistic volume? How does it effect the experience of the reader? What are your favorite books?||Dave HOWELL, Jennie FARIES, John D. BERRY, Kelly BUEHLER, Stephen SEGAL|
