Written by Joyce Cary, To Be a Pilgrim follows the character of Tom Wilcher, an elderly man who looks back over his life as he approaches death. To Be a Pilgrim is the second volume of Cary’s First Trilogy, which begins with Herself Surprised – a book that we at Easypress have also had the pleasure of typesetting for LUME Books. In fact, after we returned the proof for Herself Surprised within 68 minutes, Rebecca Souster from LUME Books responded: ‘Hands down the quickest typeset in history!’
As a new intern with Easypress, I have experienced how our software can facilitate the typesetting process. AtomikeStylist (AeS), our software styling platform, was designed to improve the productivity of editorial teams, and it certainly worked for me. It is great at shortening the time it takes to style a manuscript. AeS is also quite easy to learn how to use – perfect if you are new to it! Typesetting To Be a Pilgrim was an interesting experience, and I appreciated the opportunity to use some of our different software on a live manuscript. I got to reach out to our client, LUME Books, for the first time since starting with Easypress – a client who I look forward to continue working with, over my internship.
