“Artwork” refers to the visual material you plan to include in your book—such as photographs, paintings, drawings, figures, charts, graphs, and maps. (Tables are not considered artwork as they are text-based.) You are welcome to submit your proposed artwork in hard copy or in electronic format. The basic rule is that all artwork must be “camera ready”: either an original or high-quality reproduction of a photographic print, drawing, or map that we can scan, or a high-resolution electronic file that we can upload. Note that the responsibilities involved in arranging, purchasing, and/or transmitting all artwork and necessary permissions rest with the author.
If you submit original artwork to the Press, we will scan the originals and return them to you when the book has been published. The final version of any figures or illustrations can only be as good as the copy supplied, so please be sure you are satisfied with the quality before sending them.
For electronic artwork such as photographs and paintings, please send us each image as a separate .tiff file. The image must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) and be at least five inches wide. This measurement refers to the width of digital file, which can be larger or smaller than the original image and can be adjusted during the scanning process. If the width of the digital file is smaller than five inches, it must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi when it is enlarged to a width of five inches in order to ensure successful reproduction in the book.
For figures, charts, graphs, and maps, please send us the original electronic files of these images as we may need to make editorial changes to their text, and design changes to the visual elements. Please remember that most charts, graphs, and maps are reproduced in black and white therefore should not be submitted to the Press as colour images. Instead, please use shades of grey or patterns to visually represent the data you wish to communicate.
