Text and Design Relationship on Literature Books

Camargo, Iara Pierro de;


This paper intends to identify functions in book design, as pragmatics and semantics. To explain the idea of a “semantic function” a sketch analysis model was created and tested to analyse the Brazilian edition of Melville´s Bartleby, chosen to serve as an example for the understanding of the text-design relationship.
