Typographic Design for eDocuments

Thursday, 4:45 pm - 5:30 pm

Electronic books are huge. The convenience of having a library at one’s finger tips outweighs the various aesthetic downsides. In this talk, we will talk about the different types of electronic books, including reflowable books and fixed-format titles. We'll focus on what the primary differences are between publishing for paper and publishing for screen in order to understand the constraints. With these constraints in mind, we can learn how, with care and attention to detail, to produce books that will look great – at least most of the time! Expect to get fairly specific and detailed information about formats and technologies.
