Pathways by Nicholas Rudd-Jones and David Stewart

Pathways: Journeys along Britain’s history byways, from pilgrimage routes to smuggler’s trails is another meaty project for Guardian Books. Artypeeps managed the production and proofreading from manuscript to final files while the design and layout was done by Two Associates and the excellent maps are by Darren Bennett. This was a big book with full colour integrated images throughout and various components in the text design that needed careful attention. Lots of hard work but a really fabulous job done by everyone involved (not least the authors!). You can get hold of it from Guardian Books.

We managed the typesetting/layout and proofread this one for Guardian Books and can therefore say with a little bit of authority (just a little bit) that it’s a groovy read and well worth the measly £5.99 asking price. Happy peddling!

New titles from Guardian Books

In the last quarter of  2009 we proofread four (very different!) titles for Guardian Books. The subject matter ranged from disastrous dates to Gordon Brown.  Now they’re starting to hit the shelves so read more about them here and click through to the Guardian Books website to read more or purchase a copy.

Nothing like it has been made before and – to its millions of fans – nothing as good will ever be made again. A cult hit in the US and the UK, it is a show that prompts endless debate. Is Omar Little the coolest criminal since Robin Hood? Which series has the best theme tune? Read more…

Soulmates / Sonali Fernando

  • Ever been ditched by someone you’ve never met?
  • Ever fallen in love via email?
  • Ever received an electronic wink?

If you answered ‘YES’ to any of these questions, the chances are that you’ve spent some time searching online for love. And if so, you’ve probably got a tale to tell. Read more…

What Went Wrong, Gordon Brown? / Colin Hughes

  • In opposition he was the strategic driving force behind New Labour
  • In government he was one of Britain’s most intellectually assured chancellors
  • Within his own party he seemed an unchallengeable power

Yet when Gordon Brown entered number 10 he stumbled, prevaricated; the ‘new dawn’ promise clouded over. What went wrong?  Read more…

The Protestor’s Handbook / Bibi Van Der Zee

Note: Pub date is April 2010

Are you worried about global warming? Furious about GM crops? Sick to death of human rights abuses, unaffordable housing, junk food, airport enlargement, or just the way your neighbour’s dog doesn’t clean up after itself? Read more…

It’s available through the Guardian Books website (which, incidentally, has lots of other great books published by/reviewed in the Guardian newspaper).
