Before getting into the meat of this post, I need to offer my congratulations to Pauline – the winner of the free copy of Sewing MODKID Style from Monday’s blog post.
Perhaps the question I get most often regards how a book comes together. Here is a really short photo gallery showing how a book grows up, using Patty Young’s Sewing MODKID Style as an example!
First, the author and editor talk through the vision for the collection and the author creates a basic sketch of the collection.
Next, the author writes the manuscript.
While the editor and copy editor work through the manuscript, we work on the included pattern sheets.
Then, the author and editor do some really tough photo selection (so many gorgeous images!)
After much editing, design, and layout, the author and editor (and several other players) all read through the laid out manuscript and mark up changes to make everything just so.
Finally, the finished book arrives from the printer!
