Things I Googled While Copy Editing ‘The Stick Chair Book’

Binder one of two of this 600+ page book.

For spelling, capitalization, usage, style, context, out of curiosity:

crinoline
marqueters vs marquetarians
Archimedes
Dukes of Hazzard
hindguts
pseudopodia
dammit vs damn it
“is [read the book to find out] from Raising Arizona”
Martin Löffelholz
mushrooming
magic marker
wallered out
cabal
shagreen
Kha’s tomb
Esperanto
boogering
whoop-de-do
tenterhooks
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area
geegaw
Liberace chapeau
popliteal height
vicar
cwtsh
Shmoo
Gouda
Old Testament
charlatans
Castile

I think that list is marketing gold in and of itself but I will add this, despite the fact that Chris hates praise (something he writes about in this book): “The Stick Chair Book,” which was created from a great wealth of research, intimate knowledge and years of experience, is every part of every definition of the word generous. And, it was a joy to read.

— Kara Gebhart Uhl
