The RecSports department at the University of Texas at Austin approached me to help develop and package a book to commemorate their 100th anniversary. My role included consulting, budgeting, and scheduling the project from manuscript to book form. This included managing the copyediting of the manuscript, giving instructions on the scanning of ephemera and photos to be reproduced in the book, designing the cover and interior layout, typesetting the book, managing the proofreading, indexing, and entering of text corrections, and finally arranging and managing the manufacturing. The department was on a tight budget and schedule making it paramount that I find the right printer and binder for the job.
