Creating Dummies: 5 Ways to Make a Picture Book Dummy
What is a book dummy?
Your dummy is a black and white mock-up of your book with 2 color samples either included separately or inserted in the dummy.
This is not supposed to be a final draft; this is simply a rough idea of your entire book! However, it is the clearest most effective way of showcasing your work, so make sure to make it as engaging, exciting, emotional, funny or dramatic as possible.
The Dummy Makes it Easier to Think About:
- Where Your Page Turns Should Be
- Incorporating Different Angles and Points of View within the Images
