Capclave Ebook Workshop

Had a great time at Capclave this weekend. One of the things I did there was run a small intro to ebook design workshop. With only two hours, I decided to go with more of a shotgun approach to covering the topic. It would have been nicer with a bigger screen, but overall, there were only a handful of things I would have done differently. If you were there, thanks for attending and I hope you were able to get something out of it.

Here are some of the things I shared with the group:

I also promised to share the basic CSS I had used for my examples:

p {
margin-top: 0em;
margin-bottom: 0em;
text-indent: 1.27em;
}

p.noindent {
margin-top: 1em;
text-indent: 0em;
}

p.line-above {
margin-top: 1em;
}

p.line-above2 {
margin-top: 2em;
}

h1 {
margin-top: 4em;
text-indent: 0em;
font-size: 1.6em;
font-weight: bold;
text-align: center;
margin-bottom: 2em;
}

p.book-title {
margin-top: 3em;
font-size: 1.7em;
font-weight: bold;
text-indent: 0em;
text-align: center;
margin-bottom: 0em;
}

p.author {
margin-top: 0em;
font-size: 1.5em;
text-indent: 0em;
font-weight: bold;
text-align: center;
margin-bottom: 1em;
}

p.centered {
text-indent: 0em;
text-align: center;
}

I didn’t say I was going to do this, but I’m going to start blogging some of the details from the session. It’s going to take a bit of time (need to squeeze it into my schedule), but you’ll eventually have everything we covered with details.

  1. Just thought I’d let you know that I finally had a chance to get my notes from your workshop up on my blog. I hope they’ll be useful to you or some of the other attendees.
