    1. Informational graphics key to a good looking page: "papers don't just report the news--they illustrate it with charts, maps, diagrams, quotes and fast-fact sidebars that make complex issues easier for readers to grasp.I like what he refers to as the "magazine cover" look on page 7. "These pages use big art and dynamic headlines to highlight a special centerpiece."Editorial is "unsigned opinion pieces representing the newspaper's stance on topical issues" while an opinion column is generally attr [...]

    2. Fantastic, fun and user friendly, Harrower's book has to be the best guide to newspaper design yet invented. It works well as an intro for beginners or a refesher for the more experienced. Aside from Harrower's lively voice, a big plus to the numerous visual examples, especially templates for good, fair and risky design, all of which help readers/learners visualize. My high school newspaper staff and I would be lost without it.

    3. My teacher loaned me this book and it's a 2002 edition with no CD. This is a field in constant change, so some of the material might be a little outdated. Still, I'm learning a lot of interesting stuff that I absolutely need to know if I want to try an internship at a newspaper/magazine or news site, and even to redesign The Student Voice (the student newspaper at my college). It's interesting to see how design and journalism go together.

    4. This is a wonderful resource for newspaper design and graphic arts. When our textbook adaption comes around again I will strongly push to have both of Tim Harrower's books as our classroom text. I use this to teach parts of a newspaper page, display heads and photo pages. A very bright, graphic and engaging book. My students really enjoy it.

    5. A must have book for an editorial designer. It's very helpful, explains a newspaper anatomy from the scratch.

    6. This book is helpful for anyone interested in journalism or designing. Lot of pictures and current examples make it engaging and a quick read.

    7. Great resource for learning newspaper design. Eight years after learning the basics of layout, I still return to this book every once in a while for inspiration.
