We’re not exaggerating when we say that typesetting is one of the most vital parts of book design. After all, readers will be looking at the text the whole time they’re reading your book. Without a professional typesetter to format that text so it’s readable, readers may very well give up after the first page.
Typesetters choose and implement various font choices across the book’s whole interior — not just for the main body text, but for chapter headings, page numbers, and front and back matter that bookend that text. They’ll also correctly space the text and insert margins, a task that requires sufficient knowledge of what looks good in a formatting tool vs. on an e-reader screen vs. in physical print. Finally, they’ll check over your book’s interior design for any off-putting elements, so that the text will look picture-perfect when you’re ready to publish.
