Travels in TeX Land: The post-typesetting phase of producing a book

David Walden


In this column in each issue I muse on my wanderings around the TeX world. In my columns in issues 2006-2 ( and 2006-3 ( I described some methods I use to make it easier to draft large documentation projects (issue 2006-2) and my experience of taking the final steps of turning a book manuscript into a published book (issue 2006-3).

In this column I give a final report on the book project I last discussed in TPJ issue 2006-3, discuss ``self-publishing'' at some length, and mention some of my other recent activities in TeX Land.

Dave Walden is retired after a career as an engineer, engineering manager, and general manager involved with research and development of computer and other high tech systems. More history is at He may be contacted at
