Beautiful pictures, shame about the text
on 5 November 2011
A delight to look at but as Vic Brotherson clearly struggles with constructing a coherent sentence, surely the publisher could have given her a helping hand.
Typical sentence: 'All diddy and easy to fill, the punchy colours are already dictated by the colourful patterns on the outside.' What, in the name of God, is this supposed to mean?
Rather to my surprise, I noticed that the copy editor and proof reader are named at the back whereas you'd think they'd be hanging their heads in shame... Catherine Ward and Abi Waters, you're a disgrace.
Three spelling mistakes on the contents page alone; and I counted several more in the first few pages of text. Sloppy work, ladies. I'm not blaming the author, she's a florist not a professional writer - but she has been badly let down by Kyle Books.
