Summary
"This volume presents a systematic study of the principles that underlie writing as representational composition. Drawing from student models derived from a studio method, Kaufer and Butler use each chapter to present a different aspect of what unfolds, across the course of the book, into a cumulative, interactive, and unified body of representational principles underlying the design of texts. The authors reveal what makes the textual representations achieved by expert writers worthwhile and, at the same time difficult for novice writers to reproduce. Extending the framework of their 1996 volume, Rhetoric and the Arts of Design, into the realm of textual design, this volume will interest students and instructors of writing, rhetoric, and information design."--BOOK JACKET
