iBooks Author vs. eBook Apps – the Showdown from @Arcadesunshine

Moby Dick Case Study

This week we published two digital, multimedia editions of Moby Dick – one with Apple’s new, free, ebook building program, iBook Author, and the other as a standalone app using a framework and platform that we built from scratch. Both versions include original interviews with two of the country’s top Moby Dick experts, a series of new infographics, an interactive glossary, and tons of archival materials including period prints, archival footage of an early 19th century whaling vessel and much more…  The idea for both projects was to see if we could take a classic work, treat it like a high-budget documentary film, and publish it quickly to the mobile screen.
