Biblichor: Network Member of the Month

Each month we feature one of our network members. 

Established in 2016, Biblichor provides typesetting and design services to independent publishers, academic institutions and heritage bodies.

We have particular expertise in design-led and image-heavy projects.  Our team can create facsimile content for out-of-print analogue titles and also provide eBook/epub, open source, reprographic, art-working and data entry/conversion services.  We can offer cost-saving advice on unusual or complex projects and we're happy to tackle messy, fragmented or heavily copy-edited manuscripts. 

For more details, see Biblichor's page in our network members list and the Biblichor website.
