As such, editing can involve creative skills, human relations and a precise set of methods. Editors work on producing an issue of Bild

Publisher's Reader
A PUBLISHER\'S READER or FIRST READER is a person paid by a publisher or book club to read manuscripts from the slush pile , and to advise their employers as to quality and marketability of the work. In the US, most publishers use a full-time employee for this, if they do it at all. That employee is called an editorial assistant. Most publishers in the US prefer to receive some type of shorter query, decide if the subject and author fit their current plans, and then request a copy of the manuscript. When a writer ignores this request or guideline, and sends a full manuscript, many publishers return them unopened. These publishers, then, wouldn't have anyone "reading slush." The first person to read the submissions can exercise considerable influence over the offerings of the publishers for whom they work, and many unknown writers owed their first sale to a sympathetic publishers' reader or editorial assistant

Book Folding
BOOK FOLDING is the stage of the book production process in which the pages of the book are folded after printing and before binding . Until the middle of the 19th century, book folding was done by hand, and was a trade. In the 1880s and 1890s, book folding machines by Brown and Dexter came onto the market, and by the 1910s hand-folding was rare, with one publisher declaring them to be "practically obsolete" in 1914. The folding process is also necessary to produce print products other than books—for instance mailings, magazines, leaflets etc. CONTENTS* 1 Folding machines * 1.1 Buckle folder * 1.2 Knife folder * 2 Folding variants * 2.1 Parallel folds * 2.2 Cross folds * 3 See also * 4 References FOLDING MACHINESTwo main types of mechanisms are commonly employed in folding machines : BUCKLE FOLDERS and KNIFE FOLDERS
