Golden Section Page Design: Classic to Contemporary
Suzanne Moore, Instructor

Contemporary book design is based on the proportions and balance of classical design principles. Manuscript books are the root of all book design, and they reveal the key components of beautiful book page design – calligraphic, typographic, illustrative and non-verbal.
