Description

Since its first publication in 1975, Judith Butcher's Copy-editing has become firmly established as a classic reference guide. This fourth edition has been comprehensively revised to provide an up-to-date and clearly presented source of information for all those involved in preparing typescripts and illustrations for publication. From the basics of how to prepare text and illustrations for the designer and typesetter, through the ground rules of house style, to how to read and correct proofs, Copy-editing covers all aspects of the editorial process. New and revised features: * up-to-date advice on indexes, inclusive language, reference systems and preliminary pages * a chapter devoted to on-screen copy-editing * guidance on digital coding and publishing in other media such as e-books * updated to take account of modern typesetting and printing technology * an expanded section on law books * an essential tool for new and experienced copy-editors, working freelance or in-house.
