How a Book is Made

Have you ever wondered:Reading a finished book

  • what happens to a story before you buy it as a book?
  • who are the people involved in publishing a book?
  • how long it takes for a book to be published?

You can find the answers to all these questions (and more!) by visiting ‘How a Book is Made‘ on the Penguin website. The step-by-step drawings take you through a book’s journey from author’s desk to bookstore shelves. There’s also a glossary so you can look up words from the world of publishing (like ‘page proofs’ and ‘manuscript’). If you’re hoping to be a published author some day, you might like some insider info!
