Flowable eBooks: My book on Typography in progress

Been very busy getting 11 chapters for eBook Typography. Now decided to make this subtitled  For Flowable, since there is such a great difference between flowable and fixed-layout.

The book started out as a sandbox to try out various techniques, but I have now decided to publish. Target publication date: September August 2012.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson completed ‘The Merry Men’ when he lived in Bournemouth, England between 1884 and 1887. It was first published in 1887 with other short stories as ‘The Merry Men and Other Tales’.

First published in the IDLER, August 1894 and then later in a collection of essays titled ‘The Art of Writing’.

He started the first draft of “The Merry Men’ when he stayed in Scotland during the summer of 1881 and in his essay about the writing of ‘Treasure Island’ he mentions this fact.

The story takes place on the fictional Eilean Aros which Stevenson based on Eilean Earraid, a small islet near to the Ross of Mull and Iona. ‘The Merry Men’ are, in fact, the dangerous reefs known as the Torran Rocks.
