From the Publisher:

Unique approach goes beyond the basics of grammar and style by dividing the editor's task into line, creative and display editing, and by covering photo cropping and layout as well.

Students are taught through a step-by-step method that includes lists of guidelines for do's and don'ts.

Part III, "Display Editing" is complete, with lots of sample type, photos, graphics and layouts to illustrate proper design technique.

Comprehensive sections on law and ethics help instill the principles necessary for making decisions on issues that are more gray than black or white.

Chapter 6, "The Information Presenter" teaches not only how to write headlines, but how to edit, punctuate and make them part of the page design.
