eBooks

Shortlisted
for the Best Adult Digital Book category in the 2013 FutureBook Innovation Awards

This enhanced graphic book was built using iBooks Author for sale on Apple's iBookstore. It has 234 screens with an interactive graphic such as pop-outs, video, slideshows and pan and zoom on almost every page.

Fixed Format PDF

This is a relatively quick way to produce an ebook from existing book files by converting the text pages to a pdf. These can then be viewed on either an ipad or Kindle Fire with the 'page turning' effect and in colour. However they have reduced interactivity, and often the original book layout does not suit itself realistically to being reproduced exactly for ereader format.

ePub & ePub3

These formats can be designed, produced and read on both Kindles, using epub files, and ipads, using mobi files which are quickly converted from the epub files. This means that the same design can be sold on both Amazon and the iBookstore. Epub 3 is the latest version which can include video, audio and animation.

iBooks Author

This is a file type that can only be sold through the iBookstore for viewing on an ipad (and not iphones) The page format remains fixed only when viewed on the ipad held horizontally and the screens slide rather than turn. However it offers greater design flexibility and reader interaction. Video, audio, animation and superior text layout make this a fully enhanced ebook.

The graphics were designed to give the iBook a textured feel
