Presentation from O'Reilly's 2013 Tools of Change conference.
We know how to typeset print books, and by now, we know how to crank out EPUBs. It’s time to create some typographical standards for the eBooks we publish. Be prepared to be blown away at some of the best examples of typographically-beautiful eBooks currently in the marketplace, and then “peek under the covers” to see what kind of HTML and CSS mark-up were used to create it. She’ll present a checklist of common challenges and how those are met by the top eBook designers in our field. You’ll be able to bring back techniques you can use today to vault your eBooks to the top ranks of beautiful typography.
Thanks to Anne Marie Concepcion of Seneca Design & Training, Colleen Cunningham of F&W Publications, Dan O. Williams of Storey Publishing, Rick Gordon of Shelter Publications,and Tom McCluskey of Digital Bindery for their insights and examples.
