"Host" looks as complex in layout as House of Leaves.

My pleasure! I would like to learn more about the details of book layout if anyone has any information/experience.

Hi DWS. Thanks so much for linking to that article! I really enjoyed reading it and gaining some insight into the production end of three of DFW's books.

Re: learning more about book layout, I have some experience in book design but, alas, am more of a dilettante. A good place to start learning about book design beyond "picking the font" is Making Castoff at my friend India's blog.

The author of the essay appears to be on Twitter too. Maybe a good way to shoot her any questions you have?
