The commission

Full pre-press production – editing, typesetting, proofreading


Bourchier provided copyediting, typesetting and proofreading services for the Memoirs over many years.  Working with the individual authors and the Memoirs editor, Professor Ron Johnston, we delivered approved digital files to the Academy ad hoc throughout the year for online posting,  and at the end of the year collected all the memoirs together to produce a printed volume. The memoirs provide a fascinating record of the working lives of distinguished Fellows of the Academy, covering a wide range of disciplines and life stories.
