matter is also called end matter.

  The list of references.

  A black, red, or amber area on a mechanical or overlay
having the exact position, size, and shape of a halftone
which will later be stripped into that area.

  Part of the printing area that intentionally runs off
one or more edges of a page. Any margin between the

body copy
  Regular text, as opposed to copy used for charts,
tables, and other graphics.

body type
  Type used for the main text of a printed piece or
publication, as opposed to display or headline type. Body
type is also called text.

boldface type
  Type that has thicker line strokes resulting in the type
looking darker than the body type.

  Lines that frame a graphic. Boxed material is not
normally part of the body copy. Boxes are also known as
graphic borders.

ready for photoreproduction.

camera-ready mechanical
  Generally more complicated than a pasteup, involving
overlays for color and/or tint additions that are prepared

or windows, are substituted for halftones which will be
shot separately. See also halftone and pasteup.

  The abbreviation for capital letters.

Capstone Manuals

one under another, having flush left and right margins
when justified.

  A designed page-by-page prototype of a publication,
showing margins, areas of type and illustrations,
headings and captions, and suggested colors. It is drawn
to exact size, with every item specified or identified
(keyed) and with proofs or typeset copy pasted in
position. It must accompany mechanics and artwork
sent to the printer. The comprehensive dummy is also
called the comp.

continuous tone
  A photographic print or artwork composed of
densities ranging from white, through graduations of
gray, to black. A continuous tone image is unlike a line
image which consists of only two tones-black and white.

coordinating draft

coordination summary
  A document listing the agencies with which the
publication was coordinated, detailing any unresolved
changes these agencies proposed, and explaining why

subject. The negative for the dominant color--usually
black--is made with more contrast, while that for the
second color is flatter. The screens are turned as in
press work to prevent moire.

  The square of the type size being used, so named
because the letter M was usually cast as metal type on a
square body. Thus, in 10-point type, an em is 10 points
wide and 10 points high.

em dash
  In typeset, a dash that is one em wide; in typescript,
two hyphens.

  One-half of an em.

such variations as medium, medium italic, bold, and
medium condensed.

final approved draft

printing area to the binding or centerfold; also, the white
space between two columns of type.

  A screened reproduction of continuous tone copy such
as a photograph or wash drawing in which the middle
tones are reproduced by dots of varying size.

halftone screen
  A piece of optically perfect glass or the equivalent
containing hundreds of ruled horizontal and vertical
opaque lines. It is called halftone because the lines take
up about one-half the total area of the screens. The

photographs or wash drawings into halftone or screened

  Preliminary information about the book's subject,

  An explanation attached to a graphic; a key to the
symbols and alternate word forms in a graphic.

be drawn or otherwise affixed in register with the base
art, providing a means of separating the colors or
elements to be superimposed.

  A summary often placed at the beginning of a chapter.

page proofs
  Pages produced by a printing firm to check for proper
registration; also, in the process of producing CRC, an
iteration used to check copy, format, and/or layout.

  Mounting boards or paper on which type, art, and
other elements are pasted in the exact position and
usually in the same size as they are to appear in final
print. Although the term is used interchangeably with

and one color. Thus, they are much less complex and
require less experience and skill to produce than a true

perfect binding
  A type of binding in which the pages are held together
and fixed to the cover by means of flexible adhesive.

  The basic linear unit for measuring type. In typeset,
there are 12 points to a pica and 6 picas, or 72 points, to
an inch; in typescript, 10 characters to an inch.

   In typescript, the number of characters per linear
inch. Elite type gives 12 characters per inch (12 pitch);
pica type gives 10 (10 pitch).

  A unit of measure used to describe type size and the
vertical distance, or leading, between lines of type.
There are 12 points to a pica and approximately 72
points to an inch.

  Information about the publication rather than its
subject matter.

ragged left
  Type composed so that all lines are set flush on the
right margin but vary in length along the left margin
causing a ragged effect.

ragged right
  Type set to look like a typewritten manuscript where
all lines are flush at the left margin but vary in length

  The perfect horizontal and vertical alignment of all
component of a printed piece, each in relation to the
other. Register starts with the preparation of the
original artwork and continues with the positioning of
the negatives, printing plates, and paper stock.
Although register is always important, it is most critical
in color work. Faulty register is frequently caused by
using unstable material for art overlays and changing
the dimensions of paper stock between color runs.

register mark
  A pattern composed of a circle intersected by
horizontal and vertical crosslines. These marks are
placed on artwork and overlays. Aligning them ensures
that overburns and colors will be in perfect register with
the base art when it is printed.

repro stat
  Photostats made on paper that has a higher contrast,
finer grain, and better dimensional stability than
ordinary photostat paper. They are used on pasteups
and mechanicals for reproduction. Repro state are also
called bromides and paper prints.

ing effect obtained by printing with any color ink on a

  A type of binding in which the signatures or pages of a
publication are stapled from front to back cover parallel
to the base edge.

  A sheet of paper folded into 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, or 32
pages and collated with other signatures, when needed,
to form a publication.

silhouette halftone
  Halftones in which all detail and dot formation
beyond the central figure or shape are removed (drop-out
background), leaving a screenless white area. A
silhouette halftone is also called outline halftone.

  The distance from the top of a page at which the text

  See solidus.

  See solidus.

small caps
  The type style that substitutes small capital letters
for those that would normally be lowercased.

  In punctuation, the slanted line [/]. The solidus is also
called the slant, the slash, and the virgule.

special segment
  A portion of text such as a scenario or a dialogue that
differs from both normal text and graphics. To stand
apart, special segments may be set in a different typeface
with different leading and different indentation.

  See backbone.

  An abbreviation for same size. It is placed on artwork
or other material to be reproduced to indicate that no
reduction or enlargement is wanted. It is inter-
changeable with the notation 100% which is used when

primary type, printed above and to the right of another
character. The superscript is also called the superior.
See also subscript.

  See body type.

  A line copy screened to a particular value of the
printing color such as 20 percent of the solid color.

  The heading of a paragraph or subparagraph. Titles
are set so as to be distinguished from body copy and to
show subordination clearly.

trim lines

corners of a CRM or pasteup page to indicate the outside
edges of the finished page.

  Copy produced on a typewriter or similar impact

  See ragged right.

  See solidus.

  A line of less than full measure at the top of a page;
the last line of a paragraph composed of a single word.
