The options now available to publish across a range of platforms saw us develop a key design approach in the work we undertook for the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area "Values for a New Generation" book in 2015.
Here we established our design template on a tablet first basis that ensured it would present well when viewed though a PDF reader app such as iBooks. We then ensured this design would mesh seemless with a conventionalprinting environment to create a book with the correct look and most importantly "feel".
This approach meant that the limited publication budget was able to be used on producing a short run (200 units) digitally printed hard copy version of the book that cold be sold on a cost recovery basis.
To assist with broad scale distribution, the online copy is freely available via download from the Nature Tourism Services website.
