Book design question: My editor wants the author bio before the text. I’ve been pondering various solutions, and came up with the attached PDF. The bio texts are rather long, and I don’t want to push the title too far down the page.
There’s two navigational issues: A: The title of the chapter is on the left page (which makes browsing harder then necessary). B: The first page of a chapter omits the page number (ditto).
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. Do you know any other examples of books where the author bio is the first element in the chapter?
