Book design is the art of incorporating the content, style, format, design, and sequence of the various components of a book into a coherent whole. In the words of Jan Tschichold, "methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve, have been developed over centuries. To produce perfect books, these rules have to be brought back to life and applied."
Front matter, or preliminaries, is the first section of a book and is usually the smallest section in terms of the number of pages. Each page is counted, but no folio or page number is expressed or printed, on either display pages or blank pages.

What are Interchange Costs?
Interchange costs are the fees that merchants must pay to accept credit card payments from customers. These rates are determined by the card associations and the card-issuing banks and vary based on card type, purchase amount and how transaction data is specified. In total, there are over 300 levels of interchange.
With interchange cost-plus pricing, businesses always pay direct interchange costs plus a flat percentage and transacla­tion fee. This is typically less costly than flat rate and tiered pricing structures.
3-D Secure provides more security for card-not-pres­ent transactions, reducing the interchange rate as well as shifting fraud liability from the merchant bank to the issuing bank
When Level 11/111 data is passed for 828 transactions, interchange discounts are realized. These discounts reach as high as 0.8-0.9%.
Placing an importance on payments security is imperative to stay in business .
