Children’s books are the most popular form of book for e-book and print formatting, though require more attention in order to fit all the different e-reading devices.
Childrens books can sometimes require a substantial amount of designing in order for them to fit the format used on different eBook devices. And each device has it’s own structure.
In many cases, text is overlaid images as in Fixed Layout. Others, the images are full page, with the text running above or below the image.
Fixed layout e-books are a popular format, especially for children’s e-books, complex non-fiction e-books such as cookbooks and textbooks. Unlike standard e-book formats, fixed-layout e-books can keep the same layout and design as a print counterpart as well as include enhanced formatting such as audio, video and other interactivity.
