Providing typesetting to a publisher in a different time zone has many benefits. The Math Institute is based in Denver, Colorado, and is 16 hours behind Melbourne. We would have meetings early morning and late evening. The time difference was ideal for collaborating and handover.
Our typesetting services included:
Initial typesetting: laying out text, equations, illustrations and photos into a layout design.
Keying equations: Creating and typesetting 2048 equations over three volumes.
Video conferences: Production meetings with the team at The Math Institute.
Publishing workflow: Correction rounds from authors and editors.
Preparing press-ready files: Supplying files and liaising with the printer.
Over the three large volumes, 1302 pages were typeset in total.
Nikki M Group created 1268 mathematics illustrations across the three volumes. Illustrations ranged from simple to complex.
At the start of the maths series we worked with Michael Waski, the author, to:
design a style guide
create an artwork list
replicate Montessori materials to scale and with matching colours
develop creative artwork
illustrate complex mathematics.
Mathematics illustration for finding volumes of a revolution.
