Book Basics: How to Design a Book, taught by Olivia Croom

Wed, Oct 8, 2014 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205

Wednesday, October 8th 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

What distinguishes a book that jumps off the shelf from one that you pick up and put right back down? Whether you’re a reader wanting to know more about the magic that goes into physical books or an author contemplating self-publishing, you’ll finish this evening with an understanding of basic book-design concepts and industry vocabulary.

Olivia Croom is a Portland-based freelance book designer and social media enthusiast. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, she holds a Master’s in Writing & Book Publishing from Portland State University and has completed design projects for many local organizations including Literary Arts, Small Doggies Press, Hawthorne Books, Analekta, and Ooligan Press.
