Whoops!

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I see opportunities for book collectors in this incident. Publisher HarperCollins UK accidentally published an incorrect version of Jonathan Franzen’s latest book, Freedom.

“The book was published with around 50 punctuation and spelling mistakes after a typesetter sent the incorrect edition from their computer.”

Bad typesetter! Watch that workflow.  (8000 copies had already been sold and the publisher has offered to replace any of these copies.)
