How to optimise and add functionality​

Book design considerations

In the meticulous world of book design, the team at Make Better Documents understands that every element, from the cover to the typesetting, plays a crucial role in the success of a publication. Our design process begins with a deep appreciation of your book’s essence, ensuring that the visual elements complement and enhance the narrative. Considerations such as font selection, margin size, and line spacing are not merely aesthetic choices but are integral to creating an accessible and enjoyable reading experience. The cover design demands special attention, as it serves as the reader’s first interaction with the book. We strive to create covers that are not only striking but also reflective of the content within, ensuring that they capture the interest of potential readers at first glance.

Furthermore, the layout and typesetting of the interior pages require a delicate balance between form and function. 


Our approach focuses on readability and aesthetic harmony, ensuring that each page is inviting and easy to navigate. The use of headings, chapters, and sections is carefully planned to guide the reader through the book effortlessly. Attention to detail in this phase is paramount, as it can significantly influence the reader’s engagement and overall perception of the book. At Make Better Documents, we are committed to delivering book designs that respect and elevate the author’s work, transforming manuscripts into masterpieces.
