I´ts a long way to creating a book

Its a long way to creating a book. First of all maquette must be made (sometimes called also as mock-up). It is practically a full proposal of the book with text and illustrations, with they placements after single pages, just a would everything a look out as being in the final printed shape look. Just after creation of this maquette (mock-up), subsequently arise illustrations themselves and when be formed, everything comes together with the printer, editors and other people dealing with book creation.
