Martin Pecina’s book is not only meticulously designed, it is also written in a comprehensible and fascinating manner. It is made of texts concerning the process of book design, from the perspective of the designer himself. It includes, for example, an essay on reading, love of books and libraries, and also texts which are a practical guide for designers of books, poetry collections, and specialist publications. These tackle the issues of readability, layout, typeface selection, use of illustrations, materials and finishings, and microtypography. The book has been published and is available for purchase at www.nakladatelstvi.hostbrno.cz.
