Editing the Small Magazine. Rowena Ferguson, Columbia
University Press (New York), 1958. xii +271
This excellent small book should be offered as a
guide to every editorial assistant and editor with
his first appointment on the staff of a house organ,
society journal, or other small magazine. Chapter
(1) The Editorial Process should be required reading
for the executives of any company, organization,
or institution employing an editor for such a publication
because of its understanding discussion of
the professional relationships of an editor and
the qualifications "an editor brings to his job,
or else acquires while in service."
The other six chapters of Part One: Technical
Editorial Functions (The Editorial Process, Editorial
Planning, Procuring Manuscripts, Pictures and Their
Uses, Processing the Manuscripts, Laying Out the
Pages, and Printing the Magazine) complete a basic
handbook of editing developed through Miss Ferguson' s
Part Two: Executive Editorial Functions treats
the nonmechanical aspects of editing in three chapters:
Basic Editorial Functions, Basic Design, anm
The Editor and His Readers.
This would be a realistic text for a course in
magazine production since so many editors start out as
the one-man staff on some small publication. It
should be added to the references the author evaluates
in her useful list for the Editor's Bookshelf.
