New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
it's not usually a question that I see raised much (possibly it's irrelevant to a good amount of design work) but it's got to the point now that I need some helpful pointers from the massed genius of the posters here.
That is, for the different type of bindings, is there any rule of thumb I can use when designing a page so that my attractive layout isn't chewed up into the gutter when the book's bound? I've tried to 'talk to my printers'(there's two we use) but we're a small concern and only do short runs and I get the sense that they don't and won't want to spend any time on us.
