Text and Illustration Layout
Text layout:- What font and size of the text is used and how is the text placed in relation on the illustrations. How much margin is given and all the other things related to the selection and placement of text.
Illustration layout:- The illustrations used inside the book with the text, their placement in the pages, using full illustrations or using spots to give them extra effects. The illustrations can be used in multiple ways to enhance the designing or to fill the vacant areas on the pages where there are no illustrations.
Not only these pages are added, but we also need to do a proper layout of the text of the manuscript, the font selection, spacing between words, lines and paragraphs. The pages needs to be designed for kids and should have a colorful design. The text must be placed in a fashion that it enhances the illustrations and does not take the look away. The illustration and text layout is very important to keep the readers engaged in both, illustrations as well as message/text.
