Since first published in 1975, Judith Butcher's Copy-Editing has become firmly established as a classic reference guide. This new edition has been revised and redesigned to provide an up-to-date and clearly presented source of information for editors and for all those involved in the process of preparing typescripts and illustrations for printing and publication. The copyeditor is shown as an essential link between the authors and those who work on the actual production of the publication. The copyeditor ensures that the material is well organized, consistent and properly presented and helps remove any features that might cause unnecessary difficulty, expense or delay. From the basics of how to mark a typescript for the designer and the typesetter, through the ground rules of house style and consistency, to how to read and correct proofs, Copy-Editing covers all aspects of the editorial processes involved in converting author's typescript to printed page.
