Book Description

This Guide is meant to be the handbook for using Pressbooks effectively to produce books. Pressbooks is a simple tool, but it’s powerful too, and harnessing that power requires some learning. ”

This Guide should cover the basics of Pressbooks, how to quickly get a book into Pressbooks, and out the other end as beautifully designed PDF (for print), and ebooks (MOBI for Kindle, and EPUB for Apple, Kobo, Nook and others).

We will also delve into some more complex usecases, including special handling of images, footnotes, special styling like pullquotes, customizing your outputs and more.

We’ll announce new chapters as they appear on our blog, and in the monthly newsletter.

And if you need some urgent help or explanations on how to do something, send us a note and we’ll try to add that sooner than later. Send emails here:
