Production refers to the finalization of peer-reviewed, board-approved projects that have been placed with a particular press. Its endpoint is distribution to the public in some form. Each component of a project is assessed from the perspective of bringing the project into conformity with the highest applicable standards before release. As with many other services initiated by NP, production's role is to some degree malleable with each new press, but NP brings a context-specific care both to project production and to the reassessment informing and implied by a project's release.
