Connecting

Have you ever opened a book and had a question about how it’s made, or how the book got published, or wondered what the name of the font was? Well if you haven’t had those specific questions, chances are you’ve had other questions about books. Before I worked for a publisher, I never really thought about book publishers or what they did, and never really even thought of them as brands. To me the publisher was just a name I put on the line of a bibliography page of a school assignment. I have quickly come to realize that knowing the publisher can help you understand the kind of book you will get. I’m definitely bias, but I think Tyndale puts out some pretty good stuff, and if you want to go a little deeper into what we’re doing here check out some of the links below.
