Making of a Book

As writers we are always talking about how to make our book better – how to shape and revise.  Where to send it when we are finished and how to attract a publisher, editor or agent.  Rarely do we think about what goes into the physical making of the pages, cover and how it makes the journey onto the bookshelf.  So I thought you might find this interesting.  I know I did.  Kathy

  1. This was great! I have seen the large scale printing of high end magazines our company published in Kentucky years ago, and have been buying printing for 23 years, but this beats all! Thanks!

  2. A lot more goes into it than you think. Actually, I don’t know if I ever really thought about it. I Certainly didn’t think about the foil they put on in the beginning and then the dull glaze followed by the spot gloss. I know the embossing must have really added to the cost.
