Learn how to design a book with Adobe InDesign. Find out how to place and style text, add images, create the book cover, and prepare your design for printing.
- [Nigel] Print is alive and well. Books still have a gravitas that websites and EPUBs can only dream of. There are few things in life as satisfying as designing a book, knowing that it will be cherished for years to come. I'm Nigel French. I love designing books, and I love designing them in Adobe InDesign. Join me in my LinkedIn learning course, Designing a Book, where we'll start from the very beginning, a blank page and lots of untidy text. Methodically taking advantage of InDesign's rich feature set, we'll mold and refine our document into a beautiful book, something to really value. Let's get started.
- Setting up an InDesign workspace
- Adjusting the page size and margins
- Placing text
- Applying text styles
- Automating formatting
- Adding footnotes and headers
- Placing images
- Fixing text details
- Creating the front matter
- Creating the cover
- Exporting the final book
