We accept your book project regardless of its development stage and transform it into a top-quality edited book, even if you're in the initial phase with an idea or motivation.
Evaluation of the Project or Proposal
You may request a working session to evaluate your project or proposal for editing a personal, collective, or institutional book and provide the whole or part of the visual and written material you want to include in the book at this meeting. You can even present only a sketched work plan, an idea, or motivation.
The reviewer will provide the required information and expert opinion about three fundamental points: first, the development stage of your project or proposal; second, the level you have achieved according to your objectives and aims; and third, other aspects necessary to define the new steps to follow.
A work plan results from the proper evaluation of a project or proposal. According to this evaluation, the reviewer should help the requester define the following steps. The principal objective of a work plan is to ensure the most successful development of the project.
Always specific and personal, a work plan is only related to the characteristics of a concrete project. However, there are some general steps —or methodological sequences— to follow when preparing a work plan.
Work Plan Steps
If you only have an idea or motivation, you may work under our advice to create and gather the series of photographs to incorporate in the book. After achieving this end, as well as if you have an advanced project, you could follow these steps:
- Final editorial selection and definition of the visual discourse;
- Specifications and wording of textual components to include in the book: title, acknowledgments, table of contents, critical essays, biographies, captions of photographs, and other texts according to the project;
- Proofreading documents;
- Ideas for the book design.
Digital image processing and correction can run parallel to the preceding steps:
- Final documents for printing;
- Print proof.
Schedule of Work Plan Activities
For book editing, we organize work plan steps as a procedural program. It indicates the time and sequence of each step according to the specific characteristics of the projected book. As a timetable, the schedule of work plan activities is an indispensable tool to optimize —or maximize the efficiency of— the book editing process.
