So, Like, You Pick the Fonts?

And since we're all coo-coo over book publishing at the moment, let's take a step back and learn what book interior designers do. Yep. It's a whole occupation I didn't have half a clue about. Fascinating information, to say the least.

Thanks for linking! Please note that I have no clue what goes into designing the interior of an illustrated children's book (besides, obviously, a lot of sweat, blood, tears, and money). For children's novels, the process is probably somewhat similar to what I've described, but for picture books? Forget it. Totally different set of issues.

This is the job of one of my favorite literary characters: Jane Louise (I've forgotten her last name!! dreadful, considering how much I love her), the protagonist of Laurie Colwin's last book, "A Big Storm Knocked It Over".

I had no idea when I posted this that it would be such a hot topic. Especially useful was the Chad Beckerman link. I love discovered wholly new professions like this.
