ATG Quirkies: You Say ISBN. I Say IZBIN.

by | Aug 15, 2017 | 0 comments

In this post Adrian Tahourdin, French Editor at the TLS does a service for those of us us who never quite understood a key identifier used by the publishing world. He decodes the ISBN.

Mr Tahourdin explains to “the uninitiated” what the International Standard Book Number is and what the numbers actually mean. And as an added benefit he explains the intricacies of the title page and what life was like before the advent of the ISBN.
