Project Description

Hello,


I need some help preparing various texts and illustrations for publishing.

I have selected a number of old books in PDF format that I aim to redesign and republish. From these PDFs I need the content extracted and made ready for reuse. The contents are a combination of text, a few photographs and vector illustrations. This is mostly straightforward but due to the age and state of the original books, some of the images and illustrations need to be retouched or redrawn.

You will need to have:
1. simple word processing skills and excellent English in order to proofread the extracted text.
2. Photoshop skills to retouch the few photographs.
3. Illustrator skills to trace and very accurately redraw some of the illustrations as vectors.

The content will be delivered as individual titles on the completion of one book, as simple unformatted text documents with illustrations in corresponding folders.

This request for a quote is for the preparation of 10 titles to begin with. There are a large number of other similar titles I would like to work on with the same collaborator should the work be of a high standard and our collaboration successful.

Please follow the links below in order to view online or download the PDFs and gauge the amount of work and time involved. I will leave it to you to suggest a timeline necessary to complete the work as well as the budget.

I look forward to hearing from you.
