Share Advanced EPUB Formatting with Liz Castro

Event Details

Liz Castro, author of the acclaimed EPUB: Straight to the Point: Creating ebooks for the Apple iPad and other ereaders will explain how to expand on InDesign's export by cracking open the EPUB file and adding special features that InDesign doesn't yet support -- but that ereaders do.

While EPUB ebooks can be read in simple black and white eInk ereaders, they are also compatible with Apple's gorgeous iPad and its iBooks reader. In this workshop, you'll learn how to make books that look great in both contexts.

We'll cover both the specific details of unzipping and modifying EPUB files, as well as, the more creative design work in the XHTML and CSS that permit such features as embedded video, text wrapped around images, background colors, shapes and lines, special fonts and characters, and much more.

Your EPUBs will never look the same!

(Liz's introductory webinar on creating EPUB documents with InDesign is now available as a recording.)

This is an eSeminar

Please note that this is an eSeminar (or "webinar"), so you can watch it in your own Web browser, wherever you are, and listen over your computer's speakers. No special software is required. Again, you will have the option to see it live (and, at the end, ask questions live) or recorded. This seminar will not be broadcast to the public. You must register to view it.

Watch it Anytime!

When you register, you'll have the option to watch it live, or as a recording anytime within one month after the live event. So no matter what time zone or country you're in, you can watch and learn at whatever time is best for you!

After you register, you'll receive an e-mailed receipt from EventBrite within a few minutes. If you don't receive these emails, be sure to check your spam filter for email coming from and If you can't find them, email us at

During the live seminar, we open the floor to questions. However, don't worry: with your registration, we'll still attempt to answer your questions as quickly as possible via email sent to
