New York, NY

eBooks need designers! It's time to bring your typographic skills to bear on the future of publishing. This one-day workshop will teach print-based graphic designers how to make a (typographic) eBook. By noon, you'll have created a simple ePub file—complete with embedded fonts—from a common InDesign file. And by day's end, you'll know the lay of the eBook landscape—the competing formats and standards, the different reading devices and retail outlets, and some advanced eBook tools and techniques.
Participants will need a Macintosh laptop with InDesign and BBEdit (or other plaintext editor) installed. Additional software will be provided, along with a list of resources for further study.
