hello , As I'm in the midst of book design at the moment, I'm interested to hear peoples thoughts on baseline grids . In regards to setting up baseline grid for multi column layouts, with a mix of type and image per page like a magazine spread. the process, which I'm interested in hearing about from designers.
First, work out what the headings and body copy will be, then use that leading for the body copy as the base for the baseline grid? But I've also heard that using a half measure of the body copy leading is good practice as this will allow for space after issues. So once that is setup is there a general rule of thumb as to what the space after should be? The headings/ sub headings should be in regards to leading ?
Always great to hear peoples process in regards to this hardcore stuff
