Edgerton Publishing Services (EPS) was founded by David Penfold in 1989, initially to provide consultancy and services to the publishing industry. Pages will be added in due course to illustrate those services. They include project management (for example of the SuperJournal Project in 1993), advice on databases for publishing (for example, for the Hutchinson Encyclopedia and Miller’s Antique Shops, Fairs and Auctions), consultancy on SGML and XML and various other editing and writing tasks.
David was also for a number of years a Senior Lecturer at the London College of Printing, which subsequently became the London College of Communication, part of the University of the Arts London. He was deputy Course Director of the Publishing MA and also taught on print management courses and supervised a number of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (with, among others, the Press association, the Bridgeman Art Library and Octopus Publishing). He has also taught for the European Communication School and currently is a Visiting fellow at the Nottingham Business School, teaching a module on Digital Publishing.
David is also Convenor of Working Group 1 (Terminology) of ISO Technical Committee 130, involved in the development of standards for Graphic Technology, as well as being joint webmaster for NetIKX.
