Happy Publication Day!

It’s here: the official publication date of the 17th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. Consider it the official “birthday” of the print book. (“But wait,” you might be saying. “I have a copy right here! Why is it just publishing now?” Here’s a  forthright explanation of pub dates.)

Our Chicago warehouse has been working hard to ship tens of thousands of copies of the Manual. Here’s a peek at the books as they prepare to head out to desks around the world.
