Event description
Talking Production: The New Tools for Modern Book Production

About this Event

BookMachine Unplugged: Talking Production will offer real insights into what is working in publishing right now.

BookMachine has been organising popular publishing events since 2010. If you are an experienced publishing professional and crave an explosion of knowledge, ideas, and personal development - in a strictly social and informal setting - unplug from your desk and join us.

"Through BookMachine I’ve met and chatted to people from every sector of the industry. Everyone can learn something new at BookMachine.” David Norris, Editorial Manager, Macmillan Education

The event details

Most book publishers still produce books in the same way they did five or even ten years ago. Anyone starting a new publishing company in 2020 could do well to challenge this and not simply accept 'this is the way we've always done it.' But what can established publishers learn from this fresh approach?

Ken Jones invites us to rethink how we work by looking at some of the new and emerging tools and services that can help book publishers today. From cloud storage and better communication to ideas and new methods for document creation; from page layout to image manipulation and illustration though to proofing and commenting. Even sharing of advance copies, exporting and publishing can be refreshed.
