The War Poems of Siegfried Sassoon (Fixed Layout)

Focus: Fixed Layout Poetry.

Siegfried Sassoon is a significant and famous war poet from the Great War. War poet was a description he did not particularly like.

As an officer in World War I, he was wounded and lauded twice with medals for bravery. His poetry—at times violent, always truthful—used forceful, realistic verse to express his conviction of the stupid brutality and waste of war.

We have produced Siegfried's poems here in ePub3 fixed layout and reflowable formats to give everyone on any device the opportunity to read this amazing poetry. It is also available in PDF formats from the blog post here.

Famous Paintings (Fixed Layout)

Focus: Sophisticated ePub3 Fixed Layout navigation and content interaction. Optimized for 16:9/16:10 aspect ratio monitors.

Famous paintings is a small (but beautiful) demonstration fixed layout book. It's purpose is to demonstrate how ePub3 fixed layout image-centric books can be designed to deliver new content engagement experiences. It uses fixed layout to break paper metaphors with digital content reading.

It will work on all ePub3 readers but because it uses asymmetrical page layout and spine linear properties will not display as intended on reading systems with a partial or inflexible implementation of the fixed layout specification.

FLO Grows Up is designed as a fixed layout exemplar and fully exploits the ePub3 specifications. It uses spine properties and page dimensions aggressively. It demonstrates what can and should be done with fixed layout content.

This is a designer-centric book to show what is possible in terms of page layout and interactive navigation. It is primarily targeted at education, training and learning content but the techniques it demonstrates are suitable for all types of content except basic novels and academic content. 

The "big" features are asymmetrical pages, fixed layout viewports with sliding (flow) content, multi-page navigation structures and vertical spread layout.

The Theory of Heat Radiation - Dr. Max Planck (Reflowable)

Focus: MathML Production and Formats.

This book contains 2,968 inline and block MathML statements. It will make any reading system work very hard. AZARDI is the only reading system that is able to display pure MathML.

Spanish Tales for Beginners (Reflowable)

This is a simplified version.The original text of this book has a glossary and a large number of reading guidance notes in the backmatter.

Don Quijote (Reflowable)

A Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. It follows the adventures of Alonso Quijano, a hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels that he decides to set out to revive chivalry, under the name Don Quixote. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthly wit in dealing with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood.

Don Quixote is met by the world as it is, initiating such themes as intertextuality, realism, metatheatre, and literary representation.
