Layout and Scatter Proofs

Gerry Manacsa
Tuesday, August 4, 2009

We received another batch of proofs from the publisher early this week, so we now have a complete set of fairly high-fidelity, full-scale pages in hand along with scatter proofs of all the product art. It’s exciting to leaf through the pages, the closest thing to real that we’ve seen yet. I was pleased to see that some of the more demanding product pieces — with complex renders, tricky colors, or intensive image processing — successfully made the jump to the printed page. The proof of the recently-completed cover, with a new spine and back cover designed with DPD contributor Jill Butler, looked good wrapped around a studio copy of Universal Principles of Design, which shares the same trim size.
