Step 2: Determine the specific term which describes your book. An asterisk (*) denotes a heading that is new for the 2015 Edition.
Use subjects in this section for works on general principles of design that can be applied to various disciplines (such as art, architecture, crafts, and technology) and for works on design in a field, or of an object, that is not usually considered a fine art (e.g., "DESIGN / Graphic Arts / Advertising" or “DESIGN / Furniture").
Use "DESIGN / Interior Decorating" for works that discuss the arrangement of objects within an interior space and use subjects beginning with "ARCHITECTURE / Interior Design" for works that discuss the architectural design of an interior space.
Use "DESIGN / Textile & Costume" for works about fabrics and costume and use "DESIGN / Fashion & Accessories" for works about style and clothing.
