Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Butcher and colleagues have produced a versatile book for either a quick reference or a thorough study of copy editing."
Julie Kinyoun, Journal of the Society for Technical Communication

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.

This book really helped me to understand copy-edition and the role of copy-editors and proofreaders. I keep checking Amazon Kindle e-book catalogue to see if it is available in e-book version and am disappointed every time it is not. When will this book be available for people who do not buy paperback versions any longer?

...a bit too British. Some of the information seems specifically applicable to Cambridge University Press, and will need to be supplemented by guides to U.S. practice.
