Using a layout grid in InDesign is a great way to create a dynamic book design. You'll have lots of options for combining text, captions, and images into an attractive layout.

The eBook edition of Book Design Made Simple is available at a discount on iTunes for a limited time — just $14.99! It's a fixed layout EPUB, which means it displays beautifully on iOS devices (iMac, iPad) and also on Chrome's Readium on a PC. The big advantages of an EPUB are that all links are live, it's in color, and you don't have to lug it around! https://goo.gl/z7JLGT

Add some sophistication to your typesetting using InDesign's optical margin alignment feature. The edges of justified paragraphs look smoother with punctuation moved slightly outside the margins.
