Guide to Fixed Layout ePubs


A “Fixed Layout” e-book is probably the dumbest of all e-book formats. It’s essentially a copy of an existing book’s layout, and requires the reader to pinch and pan to TRY to read it.

Still, some books are OK in that format — photo books, some children’s books, some illustrated textbooks, and some cookbooks.

To learn lots more about converting a book to a fixed-layout e-book, see the continually-updated “Field Guide to Fixed Layout for E-Book”, available in PDF or EPUB format from the Book Industry Study Group here.
