Julie Wilson Interview, 49th Shelf: August, 2013

Q: Hearkening back to your 30 years in book production and design, what makes a book well-designed to your hand and eye? What makes for good architecture?

 

Well, yes, I guess I am still a bit of a book-nut, in love (or at least potential love) with the book as a physical object – a three dimensional physical object, not simply the flat surface of each page. Yes, I care very much about the typeface, its size, spacing, placement on the page, but I care just as much about the quality of the paper, the kind of binding, the general heft and feel of the book.
