Visually Prototyping the Owl from Oblivion
#publishing Wednesday, I started prototyping Book #5, "The Owl from Oblivion". This is where I use a word processor to get an idea of how the book will look and if there are any illustrations missing or that should be created. (Click on the page image above to enlarge it.) The black print enclosed in << >> are instructions for when the book gets imported into the publishing tools. The illustrations get stripped on import and the instructions are flagged with a special style that allows them to found easily. This book is 6x9 and it is being displayed on 8.5x11 paper. So each page of paper has a picture of a book page. It makes it easy to print and as an added bonus, it allows lots of room to write notes.
