A publisher is mainly engaged with selecting material written by authors, editing, proofreading and typesetting, doing layout and making the publication ready for print. The actual printing is not done by the publisher but by a printing company. The marketing of the publication is usually done by the publisher.
Since the Internet Age, publishing does no longer necessarily involve printed media; there is also online publishing on website (free sites and pay sites) and in form of e-books that readers can purchase and either download or acquire on CD-ROMs.
