Book Publishing With InDesign CC: Using Desktop Publishing Power To Self-Publish Your Book

Book Publishing With InDesign CC: Using Desktop Publishing Power To Self-Publish Your Book by David Bergsland
English | April 9, 2016 | ISBN: 153096735X | EPUB | 538 pages | 19.9 MB

This book is what I would use for my textbook if I were still teaching my six-credit Digital Publishing course for the Business Graphics degree I designed, taught, and led for 18 years in community colleges.

This is a major update for me. Many of the changes I've been waiting for with ePUB production have been implemented. InDesign now stands at the top of the heap for book production in general and ePUB production in particular. You do not need to know code, though understanding how HTML and CSS works will aid your conceptual understanding.

I was luke warm about FXL until I realized that the new fixed layout ePUBs would show gradient paragraph rules, gradient strokes and fills in tables, and much more. The only major thing we're missing is the fact that justification does not work in FXL. The exported ePUBs upload flawlessly to the iBooks Store and Kobo Writing Life. Coupled with Kindle's Textbook option, we now have an easy, efficient way to share training materials with our students and readers.

Finally, the 21st century book publishing software we need is within our grasp. There's still more to come, but the present version is very good.
