Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding text, part of Designing a Photo Book.
Adding text to your photo book can give context to the images, as well as fill in …any gaps in the narrative and aid navigation throughout the book. …You might choose to include an essay, either before the presentation of the …images or mixed in with the photographs, perhaps in the form of extended captions. …If the photographs in your book are someone else's and you are championing …that persons work, you might write a foreword or an afterword explaining their importance.…
If your photo book is broken into sections, you might consider section …titles to create a pause and control the pacing of the book. …You might also consider a table of contents to make it easier for readers to navigate. …This in turn will necessitate the use of page numbers. …These should be unobtrusive, and be stylistically consistent with the rest of …the text. You can choose to put them on both left …or right pages, or just on a single page of each spread.…
Captions are by no means compulsory within a photo book. …
