Today on the podcast I’m excited to continue our Behind The Scenes of a Cookbook Series with Barbara Scott Goodman. She has worked as an Art Director and designer of many cookbooks. Her work includes creating cover and interior design concepts, page and typography design, and their execution through all phases of production. She also organizes and supervises photo shoots, working with photographers, food stylists, prop stylists, location scouts, studio managers, and their assistants while overseeing schedules and budgets. Other responsibilities include reviewing page proofs for color and print quality and accuracy. Today on the podcast Barbara and I discuss her work as a cookbook designer as we walk a cookbook manuscript through the production phase of editing, design, and printing. In this interview, we also discuss book packagers and book packaging and the role of book packaging in the publishing process.
