The best, most styl­ish, most inter­est­ing ebooks are not those that use the default for­mat­ting and styling exported by InDesign, QuarkXPress, Pages, Word, or another pro­gram. The ebooks that peo­ple respond to most use dif­fer­ent fonts, col­ored text, drop­caps, head­ings and sub­heads, embed­ded video, improved typog­ra­phy, and other enhance­ments we’ll cover in this deep dive into ebook design.

In this course you will learn…

  • To for­mat tables and list data
  • How to change fonts for some or all of your ebook
  • To embed cus­tom fonts for styling beyond default fonts
  • To cre­ate drop­caps (large ini­tial let­ters at the begin­ning of a paragraph)
  • To cen­ter and right-align text
  • To change text colors
  • To indent, out­dent, and use ver­ti­cal spacing
  • Embed video for the eread­ers that sup­port it
  • Test and val­i­date your ebook
  • …And a whole lot more!

Note: This course is not application-specific. You do not need to use InDesign, QuarkXPress, or any other par­tic­u­lar appli­ca­tion for this class. All the soft­ware you need for this course will be pro­vided to you dur­ing the class.
