Jane Faiers’ Late Roman Glassware and Pottery from Amarna and Related Studies is predominantly a catalogue of glassware and pottery, with additional analyses chapters. My part in this project was twofold: I proofread the manuscript first – liaising directly with the author over any queries – and then set the book. As well as standard cleaning up of text and formatting, the typesetting of the book, totalling 267 pages, included:

  • setting plates of line drawings, at a scale of 1:2 for glassware and 1:3 for pottery
  • setting a number of tables of data, including fourteen full pages of tables. The tables were of varying dimensions, some of which had to be set sideways on the page to fit them in, and others two or three to a page
