Mendelsund is one of the most sought-after book cover designers in the world, and . Imagine a book cover that reflected this – as we start to read, the portrait is . All creative works—books, movies, records, software, and so on—are a compromise between to create, freedom to build, and ultimately, freedom to imagine.

You can also paste in content from websites, or other sources to convert them into an ebook. HTML allows you to include images, and lots of different types of formatting. If you just want a simple book that you don't need to navigate, then go directly on to the next step.

If you want to make sure the book has a table of contents, then spend just a couple of minutes setting each of the chapter titles to be formatted as header 1 or 2. You don't need to do anything other than that for this step. Download and install it free.

It's also very useful for reading the daily news for free as explained below. It's also a convenient format for Mobi and easy to manipulate in a Word Processor to edit out any problems before final conversion.

Once you have your book in HTML format, the conversion process is very easy. In the first step of the conversion process you can put in the author, book name, and upload a picture to represent as the front page of the book if you wish. You can leave the rest blank. If you have two levels my Guide for example has sections as h1 and chapters as h2 , set this for level 2.

You can then add the file to your eReader by dragging it over directly, but Calibre detects most readers when they are connected to your computer and you can send it without needing to leave the software. Now you can read the book that has been converted especially for your device! Reading international news in several languages, your favourite blogs and long articles on your eReader Of course, I don't just copy converted PDFs to my site.

I save webpages of interesting but long articles to read on it, and read the news daily in several languages, without paying anything. I made this video to explain what RSS is for those unsure. I also really like to use the Read It Later plugin when browsing and click a small icon in Firefox when I come to a long interesting article on my PC.

It will be then downloaded for me to read on my site offline by using the feed as shown here next time I connect to Calibre. Note, Instapaper also have a plugin and you can right-click to save a page, and then on your Instapaper account download the mobi file directly. So, there you have it! As you can imagine all of these PDFs I've bought, and all the interesting articles I mark to read later, as well as daily news means I have no shortage of things to read!

Since a lot of that content is in foreign languages, it helps a lot for my language missions to have something to read for practice, while not worrying about having lights shining into my eyes as I would with a standard computer screen thanks to e-Ink technology. What else do you do to access import stuff to read? Let me know in the comments! Note: For the first time in the history of the blog, I have had to disable comments on this post, because all new ones were just from spammy SEO companies wanting to promote their expensive PDF conversion tools.

Eliminate all OpenType feature use Nothing can be done about this. Epub and ebook readers do not support OpenType features. The resulting pixilated type is the same problem we have been dealing with throughout this exercise. InDesign 5. The problem, of course, is that the resulting type is very pixilated.

In reality, you need to think of a way to design around the need for either tabs or tables. They simply do not work well or translate into ebook limitations. The only rules you have available are Underline and Strike-through without any customizing allowed.

The only problem with that is the lack of spacing control. Plus there is no way to do an overlap so you cannot have a rule as a bar from which the type reverses out to white. You can only use borders on a graphic. The ePUB readers cannot put borders on a frame. If you have type in the frame make it clear enough to work as a Web graphic.

Basically that is all ebooks allow. Now you can use nested styles.

For example, I would only change style and color. You can set the export options to automatically open your ePUB after it is exported. If you own an iPad: open the ePUB in it to see how it will look there. It is especially important to check out the graphics and see how they fit. Adjust spacing as well as you possibly can. If you are typographically trained and visually sensitive, this first attempt at an ePUB will be a horrible shock.

The typographic ugliness of HTML after you have so carefully crafted your typography is a major hit to the senses. No kerning, tracking, or careful spacing. All the controls are very crude—displayed on a low resolution screen. Take a deep breath! Now get on with it.

This is the reality of ePUB. Now your goal is to make it as easy to read as possible. Make the window narrow enough to be readable and go to it. It is likely that your first attempts will require you to fix several of your styles. Thankfully, they control the entire document globally because everything is formatted with no local formatting. This is why the use of styles is so critical. Deal with reality Do not hang on to impossible requirements. The more simple you make your typography, the better it will work in this greatly restricted environment.

Just focus on readability: go easy on the bold, italic, and small type. If you have a style set up as a headline, with the keeps set up to start on the next page, the ePUB will start a new chapter when you use that paragraph style.

Otherwise, every time H1, H2, or H3 is used you will get a page break. I can then turn on start new page for H1 without affecting H2 or H3. A major problem: Originally, I had two styles mapped to H2 and two styles mapped to H3. I also chose No Page Number, which also turns off the leader. However, the ePUBs would not validate. I kept getting cryptic messages about TOC entries missing.

Practicality rules in these things. You can spend time and money trying to figure out why these things are so or you can publish books. I publish.

As you can see above, this is just partially complete. The important things here are the title, description, and keywords.

This book reads you - exploiting services and readers that support the ePub book format

You find this dialog in the File menu under the Get Info command It is required to fill out the File Info… description page. You open it at the bottom of the File menu.

They include things like the metadata title must be identical to the copy found on the cover. It must be in title case except for a half dozen or so tiny words. There are several others things like this.

Cannot up-sell to a version of the product that is more complete. Cannot mislead downloaders or misrepresent the ebook Example: An illustrated guide containing no illustrations or pictures.

Subtitles are particularly important for differentiating multiple books in a series that share the same title. Improperly formatted HTML tags in the description can cause a garbled description in retail channels. The first letter of all words in the title and subtitle should be capitalized, except for the following words: a, an, and, for, from, of, or, the, to.

The first and last word of the title and subtitle should always be capitalized. Especially at the beginning of the book. Please remember to remove blank pages before converting to ePUB Must have a valid description. Ex: Do not use the title. If you do not follow all of them precisely, they will not publish your book.

It is a real disappointment that we cannot edit these class rules, but I am strongly hoping that Adobe comes up with something for CS6. This is my first attempt at tagging for this document. I am always surprised by something. I have no idea what it is at this point. But, I will probably change this a couple more times before I finish the book. In general, it looks pretty good—for an ePUB.

There is always a little massaging, but it is minimal for a book this complex. I have looked at the CSS file generated. From what I have seen, InDesign adds a ridiculous amount of code to do a simple job. There is certainly nothing wrong with editing the CSS by hand: it is recommended—if you can stand that sort of thing.

As mentioned, I do some of it in Website design, but I really have major problems staying awake while doing so. There are three pages and many things you need to set. The metadata is where you add the keywords, description, and so on.

Add publisher entry: I always add Radiqx Press here. But they do not want to be known as the publisher. EPUB cover: I design a specific front cover to be used and link it here.

That way I can set it up in vector with live type and so on. Just remember to use a JPEG for the cover, at this point. I also place a copy of the cover on page one of the book so it shows up as the first page in the ePUB. Ordering: I use based on page layout, as you can see. I can do this because I completely re-layout the ePUB version in a new document.

Also I do not write XML. I find the articles panel does not give me the control I want.

I always place my graphic, for example, in specific locations to read as part of the copy. I do the same with the converted sidebars and all the rest. If your book is simple, you may not need to do this. Book margin: I leave this at the default. As mentioned, you really need to eliminate all special indents and tabs and let the defaults carry the day.

Hopefully CS6 will give us some better options. View after Exporting: Always check this. I am still regularly surprised by something that needs to be fixed. This is not a smooth process yet. But it is not smooth yet—and probably never will be uneventful. The image page Here things are in flux. Again, 7. But there is really no direct guidance.

I will share what I know from experience. You may well find new information available by the time you download this book. I will keep this info updated whenever I hear new data.

Please share it with us if you hear anything. At this point, I make my images to size, and vector if possible. I make them wide enough to fit the column of type and place them as inline graphics unanchored.

But InDesign automated conversion processes trash the graphics. I keep the original PSDs in case I want to go back to the way the image was before the JPEG compression ruined it with all the artifacts around the edges.

Of course, for a book like this one with many screen captures, it is not possible to maintain the dpi. The image quality suffers, but there does not seem to much we can do about this. It seems to help certain images in iBooks.

However, I am continuing to experiment with it. The iPad does a good job, but the ePUB format itself does not support graphic excellence. Maybe the eventual support of SVG vector graphics will solve these problems. Resolution ppi : —you need the highest resolution possible to look good on the better machines like the iPad and the Retina Displays of the iPhones.

Image size: The choices are Fixed and Relative to page. I was using fixed.

Step 1: Un-PDF-iying your book

I experimented with Relative to Page in uses PMN Caecilia: this is a very readable slab serif. When welearn about the world, we also learn all thereasons why the world cannot be changed.

Coding is anathema: Again, I must assume some things. Contents This last page is very important. Just focus on readability: go easy on the bold, italic, and small type. The Learning Conductor by Thomas Caplin examines the complex interaction between conductor and choir with a combination of professional expertise and dynamic involvement. Several hapters in the book can be used for specific workshops offered by choral instructors from basic conducting to more thought provoking questions about what this actually is that we as choral conductors do.

If your book is simple, you may not need to do this. Now you can save a named style to use.

Look through my other posts. I have always been a very creative person and find it relaxing to indulge in rhythmic gymnastics. I love reading novels overconfidently.
