Default Re-Printing Some Out of Print Novels

I have the rights to 8 or so books that have gone out of print. I'd like to get them back into print as mass market paperbacks - the files/films no longer exist. Each book is about 40K words.

The mass market paperback has a shorter page count than the hardcover, but the text quality seems not quite as good on the cheaper paper, and I would probably need permission from the original publisher to use their text layout - which I want to try and avoid.

Should I hire a typist? Then have someone read the typists work back to someone else to make sure it matches the original text with proper grammar?

If so - should the typist type it into word? Then I can place that into InDesign?

Any tips would be much appreciated - I have never done this before.
