Summary

Throughout the seven editions of this book, Harrower has successfully deconstructed the process of laying out newspaper pages. For journalism students and professionals alike, countless designers have used this book to learn how to design and improve their skills as visual communicators. Harrower's unique voice and quirky sense of humor are still very much alive in the seventh edition.
