Co-editions between book printing companies
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/22/2011  Keywords: book printing publisher,colour books printing

      Several language editions are printed together by the book printing publisher or packager in order to gain economies of scale. The printing press usually hasfive cylinders carrying the printing plates. Four cylinders carry the plates which print the four-colour illustrations (made up of yellow, magenta, cyan and black), and thefifth cylinder carries the plate of the text printed in black outside the areas of the illustrations. The press operator changes thefifth plate for each language edition printing. The ordered quantities, carrying each publisher?s imprint, are usually supplied royalty inclusive.

The alternative to a translation deal, which is used for many highly illustrated colour books printing and children's books printing, is for the foreign language Packaging Printing publishers to supply the digitalfiles of their translations tofit around the four-colour illustrations. This is a foreign language co-edition.

The basic definition of a co-edition is when two book printing companies publish the same edition of a book, simultaneously or near-simultaneously, usually in different countries.

  • An English-language edition, from the same plates, films, or files, may be published in different anglophone countries by different publishing companies. For example, Arms & Armour Press in the UK and Stackpole Books in the U.S. published co-editions of various monographs on military matters.
  • A French-language novel published in France this year by a French publisher could become an English-language translation published in the U.S. next year by a U.S. publisher.

The logic of co-editions has often been to use the existing distribution systems of the different publishers in each country rather than establishing new distribution systems.

Advancing IT and the globalization of publishing have been blurring the lines of what co-edition means. For example, anything published online is effectively published worldwide. Also, large multinational publishers now have existing distribution systems for their hardcopy books in many countries, so they don't need to partner with other companies. They may issue a book under a different imprint for each country, but the imprints are parts of the same parent corporation. The actual manufacturing of the books may be done in China regardless of where the copies will be sold.
