eBook Typography

Chris Jennings

Taking Place: The London Book Fair at Earls Court, London

Book designers dedicate themselves to creating beautifully crafted artefacts with fine control of typography. Is it possible to transfer this devotion to the art of typographic style to the new digital forms?

The presentation will focus on the differences between pBooks and eBooks but also encourage book designers to use techniques that will, not only, retain the quality of their design work but save time in re-purposing for digital formats.

The presenter's eBook - 'eBook Typography for Flowable eBooks' - available on the Apple iBooks store, will serve to illustrate the talk. This will be projected from the iPad, illustrated with examples.
