WHAT DOES MANUSCRIPT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

manuscript

Manuscript

A manuscript is any document written by hand, as opposed to being printed or reproduced in some other way. Before the arrival of printing, all documents and books were manuscripts. In publishing and academic contexts, a manuscript is the text submitted to the publisher or printer in preparation for publication, regardless of the format. Until recently a typescript prepared on a typewriter was usual, but today a digital file with a printout, prepared in manuscript format is most common. Manuscripts are normally required by publishing companies before being published. Manuscripts are not defined by their contents, which may combine writing with mathematical calculations, maps, explanatory figures or illustrations. Manuscripts may be in book form, scrolls or in codex format. Illuminated manuscripts are enriched with pictures, border decorations, elaborately embossed initial letters or full-page illustrations.

The first definition of manuscript in the dictionary is a book or other document written by hand. Other definition of manuscript is the original handwritten or typed version of a book, article, etc, as submitted by an author for publication. Manuscript is also handwriting, as opposed to printing.

10 QUOTES WITH «MANUSCRIPT»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word manuscript.
1
Steve Berry
I love all of my children equally, all of my printed books, and each one bears a special piece of me. But the one I'm most proud of is the one no one will ever see - the very first manuscript I ever wrote, back in 1990. It took me a year to do it.
2
Dick Bruna
I thought it was amazing to work with authors, to get a manuscript and try to make up a cover for it.
3
Aimee Carter
Characters are incredibly important, but I tend to build them around the plot during the outline stage. However, once I'm writing the manuscript, the characters I'm writing dictate how the plot unfolds.
4
Tabatha Coffey
Creativity runs across many categories in life, from the arts-and-crafts project a mum or dad does with their kids, to the bestselling author's manuscript, to the designs of the hairdresser, to the creations of the computer programming genius.
5
Aleister Crowley
The ordinary man looking at a mountain is like an illiterate person confronted with a Greek manuscript.
6
Kiran Desai
When I was growing up the publishing world seemed so far away. When my mother wrote a book, she would look up the address of publishers on the backs of the books she owned and send off her manuscript.
7
Katherine Dunham
Sometimes I have given my husband a manuscript to read that has turned out to have fantastic rave reviews and he'll tell me it is no good. Well, if I didn't know him as well as I know him I would be terribly depressed.
8
Seth Grahame-Smith
I wrote one terrible manuscript after another for a decade and I guess they gradually got a little less terrible. But there were many, many unpublished short stories, abandoned screenplays and novels... a Library of Congress worth of awful literature.
9
Margaret Haddix
Sometimes I can spend as long revising a manuscript as I spent writing it in the first place.
10
Daniel Handler
When you start writing a picture book, you have to write a manuscript that has enough language to prompt the illustrator to get his or her gears running, but then you end up having to cut it out because you don't want any of the language to be redundant to the pictures that are being drawn.
