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. Join publication designer and EPUB expert Anne-Marie Concepcion as she lays out how we can get the twains to meet.
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.
Topics that Anne-Marie will cover include:
Seattle-born, techy, book nerd, and perfectionist, Amanda received Master’s degree in Book Publishing from Portland State University. A lifelong obsession with art, marketing statistics, and digital trends led her to realize the potential for ebooks to entertain and inspire readers instead of annoying and frustrating them in the way they often do. Partnering with design-savvy tech guru Tom McCluskey, Amanda co-founded Digital Bindery to solve digital publishing problems with particular attention to the artisan aesthetic.
