Tour Stop 13: Stan's Office
Stan Bevington, founder, patriarch and head coach, has worked in this office for approximately twenty years. While officially semi-retired, Stan, a master printer, can still usually be found here, designing books and tinkering with typefaces. Everything that Coach House prints passes through his ﬁngers and before his eyes, as he is responsible for imposition, the ﬁnal stage of layout.
Opposite Stan’s office is that of Alana Wilcox, Senior Editor. Wilcox, the author of the Mercury Press title A Grammar of Endings, has been with CHP for nearly a decade. The pile of manuscripts on the bottom book shelf is just a fraction of the submissions she receives on a daily basis. A messy desk is the sign of an orderly mind, we hear.
