Showcases Digital Publishing Toolkit

The ABC of digital publishing

An event by The Institute of Network Cultures

Over the last two years a consortium of publishers, designers and developers have created several ebooks and experimented with the (im)possibilities of electronic publishing. During this event the publications and research results will be presented in which the following questions will be addressed: How does the production chain from publisher to designer change? What publishing platforms can publishers use? How do digital forms of publishing change the role of the designer? Moreover, the publication: ‘From Print to Ebooks: a Hybrid Publishing Toolkit for the Arts’ will be introduced. A publication that gives designers, publishers and developers the knowledge and tools to develop esthetic, interactive epublications on their own. Several alumni and tutors of the Piet Zwart Institute Master Media Design and Communication are part of the organisation and/or programme.
