eBook Typography. I’m working on it.

Image for eBook Typography. I’m working on it.

I am working on an eBook: eBook Typography.

I don't know when it will be finished. It is what you might call a sandbox of experiments to see what features are supported on what platforms. Updated cover.


Here is the table of contents so far:

  • Font Embedding
  • Devices
  • Using these fonts on the iPad
  • Specifying embedded fonts through InDesign
  • Embedding fonts on the iPad
  • Special Effects
  • Shadows
  • Reversing Out
  • Backgrounds
  • Testing these features
  • Embellishments
  • Colour/Color
  • Borders
  • Divide and Rule
  • Headings
  • Full Screen Chapter or Section Headings
  • Background Decoration
  • Text on the Side
  • Frontispiece
  • Landscape or Portrait
  • Designing for both Views
  • Alternative Styles
  • Forcing one of the orientations

Images show some sample pages.

Maybe this would be useful for the folks who are involved with Readium.
