June 2003, V2#6: Design Sunday, Jan 11 2009 

Simple artwork (map, coat of arms, etc.) or clip art (general books, children, calligraphy graphics, etc.) sometimes adds to any book. It also serves as great filler for white space that may appear at the bottom of a page or end of a chapter.

Artwork should be clear, dark (but not too dark – don’t choose a graphic that covers ½ the page in black ink).  Depending on your printer/publishers needs they should either be attached to the manuscript or preferably sized for the space in which it will appear. Should you possess an artistic talent or have relatives or friends that do, you may wish to include these.
