Project Description

To lay out, in InDesign, a 300-page book on Railways.
The work will take up most of a 11-week period throughout April and June, representing a significant time investment (>200 hours) on the part of the freelancer.

Book will have a similar level of detail/content to "Britain's Scenic Railways" (see Amazon for samples: [url removed, login to view] )

The job:
- Flow in text and style according to pre-set style sheets
- Select photos from an image bank and arrange (with the text) coherently and attractively in the layout, paying close attention to document styles and positioning but ensuring variety between pages.

- Send PDFs (in small batches) to the author for approval of layout, subsequently reorganising the pages if required.

- References/portfolio of previous work required
- First language must be English.
- Good internet connection essential.
- Experience of page design in InDesign essential.
- CS5 or above preferred (please state which version you have).
- An interest/knowledge of railways an advantage, but not essential.

- Must be able to start by 8th April, and be available until 21st June.
