It rather depends on what you mean by 'template design'. This has [very 
broadly] two aspects:

. The mechanistic material to do with using FrameMaker to create page and book 

. The artistic side of good typographical design

For the former, I know of no more comprehensive book than 'FrameMaker 7, the 
Complete Reference', by Sarah O'Keefe and Sheila Loring. This has now been 
republished as 'Publishing Fundamentals: FrameMaker 7':


For the artistic bit, there are probably zillions of books on good 
typographical design. I do not own it, as it was out of print when I wanted it, 
but 'Elements of Typographic Style' by Robert Bringhurst is highly spoken of:


To paraphrase Artur Schnabel: 'The text I handle no better than many 
typesetters. But the spaces between the text - ah, that is where the art 
resides.' ;-)
