What’s It Mean? New Definition
///////////////////////////////

Page Number: Whether numbered to the eye, or “unnumbered”, each page carries it’s own number designation. Unnumbered pages may exist out of the normal numbering scheme (12A, 12B, etc.), but still must be identified in some way. A book that is numbered 144, 145, 147 should have a blank 146 and still may need corrected.

Page Number (Electronic Manuscript): Number of page from the beginning of the manuscript. this file page number, not manuscript page number. i.e. the last page of the book is numbered 100, but there is a frontice piece and 8 alternately numbered pages making the last electronic manuscript page number 110.

When considering a page number strategy, the following considerations may also influence your choice:

  • Traditionally plates (fine art, etc.) are un-numbered inserts printed on one side only and have their own table of contents. Furthermore, tradition allows these to be a heavier or different quality paper – causing issues in the long term quality of the book binding.

Layout your work

Basic layout formats include a single block/column and two columns of the same width for books. Generally books no larger than 8.5×11″ don’t have more than two columns because it is rarely economical. Depending on your content and format selections, the question of economics for one and two column may change.

Basic design elements that will be on nearly every page:

  • header

  • footer

  • page numbers

  • font style(s)

  • font size(s)
