Development of fixed-layout eBooks applies most directly to the children’s illustrated book industry. Fixed layout books always display in landscape (horizontal) positioning. Illustrations are imported as images and make up the background of each page. Text is then specifically positioned on top of the images in it’s original location in correspondence with the original version of the book.
Fixed-layouts can be utilized for other forms of content like magazines, newsletters, cookbooks, etc. when content placement is a key factor of functionality.
Unlike standard layout eBooks, text in a fixed-layout book does not “re-flow” and the ability for layout settings is limited.
Fixed layout eBooks go hand-in-hand with Apple’s Read-Aloud feature for the iPad. Learn more about Read Aloud books here.
Pricing for fixed-layout eBooks is available upon request. Please fill out our Quote Request Form and supply a PDF or other digital source document so that we can provide you with the most accurate quote. High quality images of the illustrations (preferably without text) will be required to begin work.
