Book Polishing

Attentive readers may have noticed we broke into a new section of the project with the previous post… oh the excitement!

“6. Book Polishing” is about taking the draft EPUB from a package of raw HTML text and images to something that is actually a Book.  This means working out some ideas about how to properly present the text–formatting, layout, front matter, etc etc.  Hard stuff that takes some practical and artistic thought.  With ebooks we have to make all the typographical and design choices, but also ensure that diverse devices will be able to properly represent the final product as intended.

Oh yeah, and this step at Digital Aladore has nothing to do with the Book Polishing project!
