Tourist Book Report #43- Edited by Ellen Lupton, Indie Publishing: How to Design and Produce Your Own Book is a must-have book for anyone into publishing. Measuring 7” x 8.5” and 176 pages in length, the book is conveniently broken down into three sections which span design, production and inspiration. As such, it’s a really great resource for first-time zine makers looking for instructions on how to make a book as well as veteran book makers simply looking for new ideas. With 270 color illustrations, the book is visual and has some really informative graphics (the best one being the editable ‘critical path’ titled ‘how will you produce your book?’). In our opinion, the standout elements of the book are its explanations of book anatomy (telling you what every book needs) and its survey of different ways to make unique books by hand.
