In the publishing world, the word galley means uncorrected proofs, or advance reading copies. They are published months before the final printing and release of the book to be sent to reviewers, booksellers, and others who are crucial to the success of a book critically and commercially. With that said, bound galleys are very important since they serve as “pre-first” editions of any book.
Bound galleys in Newton, MA are treated with the utmost care and importance. Country Press, Inc. understands that although these are not the final book, these pre-publication versions play a vital role to the success of a book. Our bound galleys are printed and bound like a perfect book. They can be published with four-color cover, or in some cases, printed on color stock.
