Context Without Walls – PUNTPIXEL
Op 28 november 2013 presenteerde Jorrit Sybesma van PUNTPIXEL in het kader het seminar „Valt er nog iets te Ontwerpen” – Het ABC van digitaal publiceren een project dat in samenwerking met Uitgeverij Valiz en de ontwerpers van Meeus Ontwerp wordt gerealiseerd met gelden verkregen vanuit de RAAK-MKB subsidieregeling via het Institute of Network Cultures.
Context Without Walls: generating a series of designed e-pubs
The subgroup of Valiz, Meeus Ontwerpt and PUNTPIXEL has set out to create a digital version of two editions from a new series by Valiz named Context Without Walls. The publications in this series are focused on artist from all over the world. The books are multi-lingual and contain essays as well as images. The print versions of Context Without Walls are created by Meeus Ontwerpt and do contain many design and conversion challenges. Some of these problems include working with visual essays, references in the page margins and (foot)notes. Equally taking into account technical possibilities and questions of design, we have sought solutions for these issues which arise when turning a paper book into an e-book. This has led to the decision to make a ‘simple’ and a more ’complicated’ digital version of our e-book. In our presentation Valiz and PUNTPIXEL will show the practical outcome of the work so far, focusing on the EPUB-generator built by PUNTPIXEL. Furthermore, we will discuss the choices (and the reasoning behind them) we have made up until this point. Presentation by: Valiz & PUNTPIXEL.
