Here is an update on the progress of the book The Future of Architectural Education + Practice in Malaysia. The book layout is now with the designer to make final corrections and format adjustments. That will be completed by Friday this week. Several authors responded to our request to read and correct any errors in their text. Some formatting corrections have been made such as the consistent indentation of paragraphs, omission of 'widows' and ' hanging lines' etc. In the Imprint note we have added the usual disclaimer that the content of the chapters is entirely the responsibility of the author(s). We have received quotations from three printers. Unfortunately the cost of printing pages in colour exceeds the PAM budget for the publication. Printing in black and white with the cover in colour is within budget. The book will likely be in black and white unless PAM Education Committee is able to prise more funds from PAM Council. We are hopeful that an ISBN No. will be obtained and PAM Education Committee will be able to instruct the lowest tenderer to proceed before the end of August.
