E book Design in a Grand Tradition of Bookmaking
by Joel Fried lander on March 17, 2011

For some time we’ve been moaning about how bad most eBooks look, the poor typography, the feeble attempts to make eBooks look like printed books, which they do not resemble in any meaningful way.
The litany of complaints from typographers and book designers includes:
• poor tools for working with eBook files
• poor results from automated systems for converting files to eBooks
• lack of ability to create eBooks that are formatted like print books
• difficult and awkward integration of graphic elements
And the generally poor choices of fonts, settings, and control over the reading experience. Everybody admits it’s true, and we all seem to be waiting for something better to come along.architament-novel doc

The design and use of three dimensional objects, both buildings, major civic monuments and the more utilitarian elements of street furniture. The first decorative category, city spaces, falls within Lynch’s definition of path and node. The second category, major three-dimensional objects within civic space fits most appropriately the definition of city landmark (Lynch, 1960). landmarks can take the form of a distinctive treatment of a wall surface, where two surfaces meet at a corner or where the roof line of a street elevation terminates in a distinctive and dramatic fashion.
Conversely, city paths and nodes are frequently enriched with three dimensional objects, some of which act as landmarks.There are two types of landmark. There is the purely local landmark which is visible from
restricted locations. These are the points of reference by which we give directions to strangers in the locality. They are the ‘innumerable signs, store fronts, door-knobs, and other urban detail, which fill the image of most observers’ (Lynch, 1960).Without this rich array of local detail the urban scene would be greatly impoverished. The second type of landmark has city-wide relevance: it is a major point of reference shared by a large population
