let’s think at a website like an old fashioned book.
and let’s review, in short, the book anatomy terms:
the essential elements of a front cover include title and author name.
optional elements include the subtitle (if there is one) and photos, background images or graphics.
all the leaves of the book. each leaf has two pages.
the title page of a book is the page at or near the front which displays its title, subtitle, author, publisher, and edition. (a half title, by contrast, displays only the title of a work.)
displayed on the rear of the title page includes the title of the book, the author’s name, the publisher information and country of printer/printing edition.
usually headed simply “contents” is a list, usually found on a page before the start of a written work, of its chapter or section titles or brief descriptions with their commencing page numbers.
forewords are written by someone other than the author.
the preface gives the author, the opportunity to introduce himself to his readers.
it’s necessary for the book’s comprehension.
all the pages, numbered. usually grouped in chapters. sometimes the chapters are divided into subchapters. the first page of a chapter or a subchapter is listed in the table of contents.
also called “blurb”. usually a teaser.
looking through my images i asked myself one day: why not displaying them on the website using this concepts…? so i started playing arround.
