E book Design in a Grand Tradition of Bookmaking
by Joel Fried lander on March 17, 2011

For some time we’ve been moaning about how bad most eBooks look, the poor typography, the feeble attempts to make eBooks look like printed books, which they do not resemble in any meaningful way.
The litany of complaints from typographers and book designers includes:
• poor tools for working with eBook files
• poor results from automated systems for converting files to eBooks
• lack of ability to create eBooks that are formatted like print books
• difficult and awkward integration of graphic elements
And the generally poor choices of fonts, settings, and control over the reading experience. Everybody admits it’s true, and we all seem to be waiting for something better to come along.architament-novel doc
