For an interesting coincidence, take a look at this blog

... third or fourth item down (guest article dated May 27, "How Book Design Affects Readability") and you'll see The Sonnets.


I just got Warwick Collins' book as well and can't wait to read it. I've never read any of Shakespeare's sonnets I'm sorry to admit (mayne in high school, but if I did it's all a blur now. The other two books sound good, too. Just curious--did you not like The Atonement? I really need to read The Go Between, too.


...or Atonement (sans The) as the case may actually be...


Danielle, I may be the only person in the world who hasn't read it (or any Ian McEwan, come to that!)


Maggie, how interesting! The interior design of The Sonnets is beautifully clear with plenty of space, and it does invite the reader in.

If you were the only girl in the world ...
Well then I'm the only boy! I haven't read Atonement or any book my Ian McEwan either.

Thanks, Karen. I thoroughly enjoyed designing The Sonnets, and was happy to be able to use a lovely font called Zapfino for the chapter headings. Since the bulk of my design and typesetting work is academic, legal, and medical, it was a pleasure to indulge in a little creative fantasy with this one.
