University Press Week

Day #3: The Pleasures of a Long Project

In the latest of our University Press Week posts, Newgen Project Manager Charlie Clark talks about working on the vast Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization.

Newgen Project Manager, Charlie Clark. Charlie is based in Austin Texas and works mostly with US-based university presses.

In 2018, Newgen partnered with Yale University Press and the Posen Foundation to help prepare for publication the multi-volume Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization. As of this writing, Newgen has helped bring volume six to publication. Three more volumes are currently in progress.

From the start, this project has been unique in a variety of ways. Not only is the overall size substantial (ten volumes), but each volume can itself be more than a thousand pages. Each volume has an individual editor, or pair of editors, in addition to the team of editors at Posen with whom we work through all the various details. Some volumes have required transcribing hundreds of pages of “tearsheets” (marked-up photocopies), converting them into Word documents, which we then inserted into the correct locations within the existing manuscript files for the new material. Although many of the entries in each volume were previously published in English, others are newly commissioned translations, and we must be conscious of respecting the writing and grammatical styles of the texts, many of which are hundreds or even thousands of years old, rather than adhering strictly to the latest editorial conventions.

While some volumes in the series can contain more than 100 pieces of scattered art, each volume also features a full-color section of visual material—paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, architecture, etc. Because this section has to fall in an exact location within each volume, our editorial and typesetting teams have worked closely to ensure the section preceding the color insert ends exactly on a full signature.

It is a pleasure to see such complex, extensive, and individual projects progress from into beautifully edited, typeset, and bound repositories of Jewish culture.

We have worked closely with editors at Yale and Posen to address the various quirks and idiosyncrasies within each book. It is a pleasure to see such complex, extensive, and individual projects progress into beautifully edited, typeset, and bound repositories of Jewish culture. We anticipate working on the remaining volumes for several more years to come.

The Newgen team project manage editorial production of scholarly and reference works for university presses throughout the world. Contact us today to find out how we can help add scale to your operation.
