After a writer has collected the necessary information he wants to write to his audience it is time to decide how the information will look like. This is not only applicable to books in paper form, but also for books in electronic form. Therefore, What does composition mean? An answer to that would be – The act of designing and creating books in both electronic and paper form. It mainly consists of making any publication highly presentable. Composition primarily involves packaging of work. The main factors of Packaging, of course, is viable designing and texture selection. A proper package is always easier to pick up by an uninformed reader. The packaging, therefore, needs to capture the whole essence of the content contained within itself.
Designing as a process in the composition of books involves planning the visual appearance of the books. Whereas the actual creation of the book involves making or publishing the book by writing down words. Subsequently, inserting images on the pages, making it more appealing and taking care of how the book looks at the end.
Factors considered in composing books
Books are made with the aim of communicating to different people and generating profits for the writers. Understanding the reader becomes an essential element in preparing books. Their tastes, cultural preferences, and choices make are elements in choosing a design for the book. For instance, a book of historical importance is to be prepared differently than that of a superhero. Similarly, a work intended for a particular ethnic group might be varying from other. So on and so forth.
The readers’ and the writers’ of a book tastes and preferences are therefore represented while composing a book. Among the important factors considered while composing books include;
1. The audience of the book
The people who are expected to read the book are very important while making a book for example; books expected to be read by very young readers should be interesting and engaging. This will mean that the books will have to bring in some aspect of colouring and diagrams to keep the young readers entertained and concentrating. It also helps to bring in some animations (in form of enhanced eBook) or interactive puzzles to keep them hooked. More technically though, the texture of paper, high contrasts and easy handling of the book in terms of its weight and dimensions, all play a part.
Things are different when it comes to older readers for example; in the case of the scholars books need to be straight to the point and only use diagrams or pictures that are necessary for the scholars’ study. Diagrams would mostly consider Infographs and plot charts, statistical data or say detailing ones. However, a concern that needs to be taken towards these is, that the textual matter needs to be clear and concise. It is important that the reader finds what he needs with minimal effort on his part. He needs to arrive at matters that are important to him with an intuitive ease of operation. To facilitate that, Glossaries, FAQ’s and Indexes are necessary.

2. The capital available for publishing the book
The amount of money available for the production of a given book will always determine how a book will be composed since some designs are more expensive than others. It is imperative that every book needs to look and feel different from its competition.This customisation comes at price and packages. Also, every book needs to feel and look timeless in its making. That is to say, where proper design composition comes in, it is important that the layouts and art involved are relevant and effective in the future as well going down the line. In order to do that, talented design makers and software need to be employed on a resource basis. The amount of resource that a publisher is willing to put in to bring out his product is called capital.

3. The quality of the book
While designing a book in paper form the quality of its pages will determine whether readers will encourage other readers to purchase more of the books or not. the type of paper used upon, the print density that is chosen are all factors here. It becomes especially important when the book involves graphical works ( say, comics, or manga etc ).
A book with pages that easily wear out is not something good for a writer or publishing house. In a similar fashion, The pages of an e-book should also be visible on the screens they will be displayed upon. Screen size compatibility is mostly achieved with proper eBook readers, such as Moon+ or Kindle. The page layouts, width margins, visual appeal insightful nature and the highlighting colours used to emphasise a point, all form factors for a proper and engaging reading experience. Also, animations and multi layered deep visual effects inclusions without losing out on the essence of content is important for any eBook for becoming successful.
The screen pixel density and automated light adjustments (day light changes and night modes) are minor factors in this process. And not many know of these technicalities as well as we do.

4. Book formats in composition of eBooks
There are different book formats in paper based books. Dairy or Text books, Manuals or Journals, and so forth. Maintaining a proper format becomes important for writer in properly conveying his idea of the book. In the view of a reader, the need to clearly understand what the book is about in one look before buying it is essential. The book formats play an important role in the present generation of eBooks as well. The book form and format mainly affects e-books since it determines on which device the books will be readable. For instance, file formats like PDF or Doc are readable in most general software either on desktops or mobile devices.
However, formats such as Mobi, ePub, CBZ or CBR require special reader software’s to actually be readable. In that context, some formats require a whole different exclusive device to merely open it. For instance, Amazon Kindle works exclusively on the format of Mobi. Readers like Nook however support many formats in them, however have failed to capture the market as say Google Books, or Amazon Kindle has done.
In this concern, We have been the front-runners in designing and developing most of the eBook formats now prevalent all around the world. This gives us an edge over others, in actually developing content and your book in the most precise and compatible manner.
Elements of the Process and How Are They Important:
Arranging characters, and words according to the most efficient lithography is called Typesetting. Though by definition Typesetting comes across as a mere chore, it in itself is an art. An art form dealing with designing a font, and protecting authorship. Also, Typesetting is an essential form of formatting a book in a clear and concise manner. Text arrangement, protecting visual ethos of a work are the essentials of a good typesetting service. The essential tools at hand would be Adobe Indesign, PTC Arbortext, or LaTex. Most worthy ePublishing companies use these tools, in addition to their own professionals to bring out the best performance and perfection.
In recent times, book composition by Typesetting has been automated with proprietary softwares which are created and used by Publishing houses as per need. These wholesome packages process you work over time to actually make it the perfect output that you always want for it.
2. Designing And Visual Art
What ever your story or content is, a book is eventually only picked up from the store or in case of online hosting, clicked upon, if there’s an exciting visual appeal to it. Now having a worthy and engaging cover art is the first step in achieving that. The design and art selected by an author basing on the content within, is highly essential. The usage of colours and strokes, palettes, multi depths etc all should resonate the idea within. Once a perfect design is fixed, the other dynamics of book preparation come along. They deal with paper selections, margins, fonts and also associated designing works inside the books. Accompanying artworks, diagrams and illustrations are to be taken care by a worthy eBook publishing service.
3. XML And HTML Conversions
Wherein, your work involves inter changeability within different formats, XML or HTML conversion becomes pretty important. By interchangeability, we mean to stress that not all eBook readers support every eBook format out in the market. A widely known case here is of Mobi, which is supported majorly by Kindle devices, which in turn fail to accommodate any other formats, like ePub, CBR or PDF. In order to make the eBooks highly compatible, the works need to be converted first into XML or HTML files. These became the base on which all formats can be build upon. The eBook publishing company, will therefore give you XML or HTML conversion with zero loss in translation, and make your work ready to get published in any platform, form or format that you desire. Therefore, the core material always remains protected.
4. Format Conversions And Support
Each book is different, in its content and the ultimate reader it caters to. With this idea in mind, Professional eBook publishing services offer many options and packages which ensure that the book sets out to do what it intends to in the market. A universal book formating service is thus offered which can be further converted into and for ePub readers, iBook for Apple devices, Nook readers and Amazon Kindle reading devices. However, a good service is never complete when a service provider stops caring for the product after sale. This is important for any later in the day decisions, or further enhancements or tweaking to audience services, which needs to be taken up by a publishing company. A round the clock support system is to be established for each author and his needs are to be catered to on a priority basis.
