Book: Great British editorial

Emeyele (2008) Great British editorial. Barcelona: Index.

Review of book: The book went through everything in the magazine industry from the marketing to the structure within a publishing house to the history of magazines. I’ve always wondered the different job roles/ responsibilities e.g. editor, designers etc. The book was very broad so it didn’t have in depth information about certain aspects of design which I wanted. I wanted to find different interactive elements throughout the history of magazine or some example of good layouts. It broke down the anatomy of a magazine with about a paragraph of information, good book to summarise the industry and to get a feeling for the project but not a good book for inspiration or work development.
