editing tools in old days

Jane Austen

The above linked article talks about how editing was done before the days of word processing and Post-its. It was very interesting to me how resourceful authors had to be. Leaving spaces, cut and pin, etc. I am amazed at how well the books came out. It just shows that the tools we currently use are not as important as the words and getting the thoughts out.

This is a photo from the article. I can’t quite figure out the system, but it looks interesting.
