HOW CO-EDITIONING WORKS
Co-editioning allows the local partner to publish top quality, full colour books, tailored for their market, at a fraction of the cost of producing a small individual print run.
Anno Domini produces each book with text and illustrations of the highest standard. As the concepts and spreads are developed they are shared with partners at bookfairs or via e-mail with pdf attachments.
Once language partners decide to publish, they translate the text, adapting it to local needs, place it in position using InDesign files supplied by us, then produce and send to us pdfs of the black language text only. The partner then has plotter proofs from the printer, as position check guides, so that they can sign-off their edition.
All language partners share a common format, design and illustration package but have the book in their own language, translated, adapted, checked and controlled by them.
Each publishing partner buys exclusive publishing rights for their agreed market area when they contract to buy a book from Anno Domini.
