quality indexes for scholarly books 

After more than 20 years of enjoying the challenges of indexing, I am shifting my focus to the delights of oil painting, art quilts, and staying healthy. I plan to create an art website in a year or so and will post the URL here. My heartfelt thanks to all the editors and authors who trusted me to index their projects over the years. My ideas about quality indexes can still be found in my book,  Ten Characteristics, and in ASI's guide to best indexing practices.
