Paper Grain: The direction most of the fibers within paper generally lie, corresponding to the direction of their flow on the papermaking machine.

Paper Opacity: Nontransparent property which prevents or reduces “show through” of printing from the book side of the next sheet.

Design Inspiration

Via digital watermark consider adding monograms, coats of arms, or book subject/part wallpaper designs to some, or all pages.

///////////////////////////////
Book Manufacturing Concepts
///////////////////////////////

Too much of a good thing: While technology exists to jam pack content on a page, and layer it with digital watermarks, don’t use it in such a way that it splits the reader’s attention too much. You don’t want readers feeling like they have a puzzle book that is hard to read.

Marketing advice
///////////////////////////////

When using book content online (marketing or sharing), do Copyright protect yourself by placing information in a watermark on each page/image. Visit a few examples on our website: Alexander Index (PDF), Green Index (PDF), Chute Cover (JPG)

Computer aid!?!
///////////////////////////////

Looking for other ways to have your manuscript “at hand”? A tablet may be a better compromise between a desk or laptop and a phone. Again, Android users can download MS Word app for free, while Windows users can access MS Word for free, while online. Many of today’s tablets can also attach keyboards, mice and wireless printers with ease while having robust memory (both speed and capacity).

December 2006, V5 #12: Design Friday, Mar 20 2009 

Specific suggestions while deciding index entry/item framework:

  • Acronyms should also be considered as candidates for cross reference, such as UDC/United Daughters of the Confederacy.

October 2006, V5 #10: Design Friday, Mar 20 2009 

Specific suggestions while deciding index entry/item framework:

  • If you plan to include nicknames or AKA, decide how you will be formatting them. Do not format them the same as maiden names. We suggest nicknames in quotes “Bob”, and maiden names in parenthesis (Blu).
