Digitizing Context Without Walls, Creating ePub3s through the Epubster Generator
Pia Pol (NL)
Valiz and the art publicist Daphne Pappers are currently developing a new series of publications named Context Without Walls. The publications in this series are focused on artists from all over the world. The books are multilingual and contain essays as well as images. The paper versions of Context Without Walls are being designed by Meeus Ontwerpt. Valiz, the designers of Meeus Ontwerpt and the developers of PUNTPIXEL have together attempted to create a digital version of Common Skin, the first publication in the Context Without Walls series. Taking into account the technical possibilities and questions of design, they have sought a solution for the issues that arise when turning a paper book into an e-book: the Epubster. The Epubster is generator which enables a publisher to create ePub3s with extensive designs as well as images in the format of a series.
Highlights – ePub personalizer
Loes Sikkes (NL)
Rotterdam-based designer Loes Sikkes (Medamo) will present the Highlights research project, designed in collaboration with the nai010 publishers and the PUNTPIXEL developers. This example shows how users can compose an ePub. Within a digital edition the content of a collection can be handled dynamically, providing new possibilities in comparison to a static printed publication. The Highlights research project focuses on the translation of existing information/content to a new product, with the added value of allowing users to influence the composition of the content of the digital edition. The research focuses on selecting within existing collections and personalizing the digital publications. The evolving open-source application is suited to other topics provided it concerns a collection and is a concrete product for the Toolkit originating from this research.
