Overview[ edit ] An e-reader is a device designed as a convenient way to read e-books. It is similar in form factor to a tablet computer [3] , but features electronic paper rather than an LCD screen. This yields much longer battery life — the battery can last for several weeks — and better readability, similar to that of paper even in sunlight. The absence of such apps may be perceived as an advantage, as the user may more easily focus on reading. An idea similar to that of an e-reader is described in a manifesto written by Bob Brown titled The Readies, [11] which describes "a simple reading machine which I can carry or move around, attach to any old electric light plug and read hundred-thousand-word novels in 10 minutes". His hypothetical machine would use a microfilm -style ribbon of miniaturized text which could be scrolled past a magnifying glass, and would allow the reader to adjust the type size. He envisioned that eventually words could be "recorded directly on the palpitating ether". The Rocket eBook was the first commercial e-reader [13] and several others were introduced around , but did not gain widespread acceptance. Electronic paper was incorporated first into the Sony Librie that was released in and Sony Reader in , followed by the site Kindle , a device which, upon its release in , sold out within five and a half hours. As of [update] , new marketing models for e-books were being developed and a new generation of reading hardware was produced. E-books as opposed to e-readers had yet to achieve global distribution. The iPad, the first commercially profitable tablet, was followed in by the release of the first Android -based tablets as well as LCD tablet versions of the Nook and Kindle; unlike previous dedicated e-readers, tablet computers are multi-function, utilize LCD touchscreen displays, and are more agnostic to e-book vendor apps, allowing for installation of multiple e-book reading apps. Many Android tablets accept external media and allow uploading files directly onto tablet's file system without resorting to online stores or cloud services. Many tablet-based and smartphone-based readers are capable of displaying PDF and DJVU files, which few of the dedicated e-book readers can handle. This opens a possibility to read publications originally published on paper and later scanned into a digital format.

Double-sided cubes have images on both sides so you can make up the cube to display either the inside or the outside. Print one side then turn the paper over and put it through the printer again to print the second side.

Creating StoryCubes What Size should my images be? What is the difference between single-sided and double-sided StoryCubes? Despite the chaos of this fact, and the anxiety it gives designers, this is truly one of the main advantages of ebooks. They are a kind of blank slate waiting for the reader to layer their needs on top of that bare structure. So, for example, a dyslexic reader can use a font that makes comprehension a little easier. And a print-disabled reader can convert the HTML to Braille output, or have a screenreader voice the text.

I know I am repeating myself here, but truly this is one of the key affordances of ebooks: they are what the reader needs them to be. One of the key affordances of ebooks: they are what the reader needs them to be. A well-designed ebook is not just one that is typographically sound — although that counts — but one that is clean, lean, and agile.

There is a bumper crop of ebooks up for sale about which this cannot be said. These kinds of poor markup practices will get in the way of device fragmentation, conversion to other uses, and will not hold the structure and style as intended. With that in mind, I propose that the big three of ebook design are: Use fonts designed for screens Mind the principles of interoperability Responsive design Typography on Screen The needs of screen reading are very different form print on the page.

You have likely noticed, for example, that you set type much larger for screens than for the page. Larger type size is just the start of how the needs of fonts on screen differ.

Print fonts are designed for print. They have areas in their various faces that are designed to accommodate ink squeeze or dot gain. When these typefaces are used on screens, their blocks of text can look pallid, spindly, and hard to read.

Details such as thin hairlines or serifs can become very faint and hinder readability. This is where font hinting comes into play.

A good digital font has been hinted, a process that is critical to screen legibility. The hinted version has increased edge contrast and greater general legibility on your screen.

Note the increased edge contrast with the hinted text but more faithful character shape and more natural inter-character spacing in the unhinted text. X-height provides a way of describing the general proportions of any typeface. Large x-heights generally make a typeface more visible at any given size.

Display faces with very large lowercase characters tend to communicate with clarity and emphasis. Text typefaces that incorporate large x-heights generally do so in an attempt to increase legibility and readability. A large x-height is not a universal marker of a well-made digital typeface but it is an important consideration when choosing a body typeface for content destined for screens.

The hallmarks of a good body font are the same as one would look for in print: even colour, regular spacing, and slightly open. The two most noticeable things in text are texture and colour.

A vivid illustration of one letterform from metal type drawing, with ink squeeze emulated, in print, and as a hinted eText font. My advice is to leave the base body font size undefined. Avoid hyphenating and justifying text. The built-in hyphenation dictionaries stink. And justified text on a small measure can be disastrous for legibility. Pretty please?

One or the other will do. Both will mark your content as unprofessional. Pay attention to line height. Use good defaults that respond to the font called for in the ebook. Fonts with large x-heights take up more screen real estate and generally require more leading, for example.

The easiest and more visible improvement you can make to your typography is to use a professional font. If you have a Creative Cloud subscription, you have access to a boatload of Typekit fonts, many of which are available for embedding in an ebook.
