Book References

Book information should be in parenthesis. A semicolon should separate the publisher info and the year published.

Within story copy, keep same typeface as main text:

In product stories, publisher info should match product text treatment, but remain in parenthesis after the book title. If a price is included with the information, it should appear after the year the book was published, separated by a semicolon:
