Picture Research for Book Printing Jobs
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/8/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Company, Book Printing jobs

       For Book Printing Jobs picture research is the selection, procurement and collection of illustrations of all kinds. The number of in-house picture researchers is very small. They are concentrated in some of the highly illustrated, non-fiction, adult and childrens book publishers (where they may create a picture library), and the large educational houses. Some commission photographers. A publisher or packager may, however, use expert freelance researchers, who specialize in particular subjects and serve a range of media. Otherwise, picture research for the text or cover may be just part of an assistants work in an editorial or covers department.

      A general working specification for a book is drawn up in the editorial department. This covers the title, author, publication date, print run, books market and its territorial extent, number of pictures required, ratio of colour to black and white, page size and picture budget. The picture researcher will be briefed by the editor or designer usually before the author has completed the manuscript, to ensure that the pictures are ready for the design stage. The brief can range from being very specific (the author or editor supplying a complete picture list citing most sources), less specific (just listing the subjects), to very vague (requesting pictures to fit the manuscript). It is vital for the researcher to clarify the brief.

According to book printing companies weekly report, children's books fall into the following categories 27% picture books, 17% books forbabies and toddlers, 20% for younger readers, 19% for middle readers, and 17% for young-adult readers. Children's books tend to have a longer life than adult books. They start off slowly and build over time. Today children's books are not just sold through bookstores. They are selling through discount stores, book clubs, toy stores, food and drug stores, as well as chain and independent bookstores. Discount stores, which include Kmart and Wal-Mart, have recently had the largest market share for children's book purchases. Independent bookstores, which have a very small market share, can do well if they combine their bookstore with other specific activities, such as workshops and games that involve both children and parents.

Women buy 82% of all children's books and half are bought as gifts. Nearly 40% of the books are bought by mothers. Resources for Writing, Producing and Promoting Juveniles lists the help you will need to write, produce, publish and promote this unique type of book. Document 610, 8 pages. Even if you are not an author or publisher of children's books, you will want to see how Dragon Tales Publishing has mixed illustration, text, and sound on disk. Full color children's books can be printed digitally in short runs. Color separations and large Hong Kong printings are part of the past. This is good news tosmaller and newer publishers that would like to test a new book.
