Episode 170: Maps, Footnotes and Dedications - When Authors go the Extra Mile
It occurred to Jules and Madeleine that while they talk about books a lot, they've never discussed the book as a physical object, and many books are works of art even before you delve into the contents. To rectify this shortfall, this week the dragons will be looking at what makes a book art as well as all the little extras and supplementary materials many authors give their readers. From footnotes to character lists to pronunciation guides and special editions, this episode is about the ways that author's connect with their readers and make their books stand out.
