Vision but flaws mar needed editing textbook
Review of Newspaper Editing and Design: A guide to production journalism, by Allan Lee and Greg Treadwell
This timely publication by two lecturers at AUT University's journalism school is aimed at putting that imbalance right, and more importantly passing on some of the craft built up over generations of subediting in New Zealand. There is a nice introduction looking back at the history of newspaper production, which sets the tone for the whole book; chatty and easy to read, if a little long-winded in places.
