Book Shows How 2D Print Media
Can Make Good Use of 3D
materials take on a new excitement and immediacy when three dimensional
graphics are included in the mix. 3D in Print, a new book published by
McNeil and Richards, shows how print media can use 3D and offers dozens
of full-color examples.
Author John Gilhooly said, “The book
should be of interest to anyone involved in producing printed materials,
but it will be of special interest to those involved with newspapers and
magazines that are having a hard time surviving in these tough economic
times. Printed media have only scratched the surface when it comes to
using 3D graphics, but these graphics can have a big impact on readers.”
The book discusses 3D software, the basics
of working in 3D, type and logos, and specifics about how to create 3D
layouts. The last 58 pages of the book are devoted to full color illustrations
of layouts for newspapers, magazines, advertisements, and other media.
Topics in the layout section include: pages built around 3D models, arranging
elements for a 3D effect, using a 3D box to show depth, using photos for
3D effects, and using type for 3D effects.
Gilhooly worked for newspapers for twenty
years before running his own typesetting and design business.
