Under the heading of software, I will look at three categories of program.
- Writing software, covering the planning, writing, and editing of novels.
- Publication software, covering the formatting for digital publication and typesetting for print.
- Graphics software, covering the creation of illustrations and book covers.
By typographical elements, I'm going to mean fonts and I will be looking at two kinds: text fonts, for the printed interior text, and display fonts, for the titles and cover art.
By graphical elements, I'm going to mean any resource used in creating illustrations, be they 3D models, textures, or paint brushes.
