This was a technical title, with a heavy math content, a complex art program and a tight schedule.
Setting the equations was a major challenge. The author requested equations be set in specific colors and exactly match the previous edition.
Figures had to be set in the stub, with the captions placed at the sides, top or bottom to balance the page layout.
Lists required special characters set in specific colors.
Page layout was complicated by the requirement that the figures be set within “example boxes,” which in turn needed to be set between lists.
How we made this possible
In-depth planning at the project launch for production
A dedicated and skilled composition team
Diligent setting of the equations and placement of the images
Copyeditors who were experts in the subject matter
Effective communication by the project manager, with an eye on quality and the schedule
