concept to publication


This blog is part of, the website of Thomas Christensen, author, publisher, designer. Most new stuff is happening here.

Right Reading (a term used in printing, meaning “having correct orientation”) deals with issues of print and electronic publishing. That includes writing, editing, translation, literature, graphic design (Photoshop, Illustrator), page layout (InDesign), photography, typography, web work, and related topics.
