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.

There are now books of games, and games of books – what, for example, do we call an interactive children’s product, and does it matter? An expert panel from publishing and the games industry examines a range of topics including our continuing need for exciting stories on which games can be developed, and how publishers are looking to develop a digital strategy across media platforms.

In this seminar we'll be exploring children's publishing around the world through the rich and varied experiences of our three speakers: a writer, a publisher, and a bookseller.

How children's publishing travels the world - or doesn't! How an innovative publisher can capture the zeitgeist, and exploit technology in new ways to engage very young children How a passionate bookseller places books in the hands of children, and wins the hearts of parents and children by intelligent promotion Join Simon Mason, David Salariya, and Mark Thornton to enjoy the richness and diversity in children's publishing today. Chaired by Sheila Lambie, In association with Oxford Brookes University.
