VCH Style Guidelines

General Principles

This set of style guidelines is intended to form the latest revision of what was known as the 'Handbook for Contributors'.


As used in this style guide, roman is a typographical term designating a style of lettering (in any typeface) in which characters are vertical (as distinguished from italic).


Detailed guidance relating to VCH house style is available from VCH Publications Officer, Lianne Sherlock.
