We publish books both digitally (website, ebook, PDF) and in print format. Generally we start from the digital side (e.g. a text from the Marxists Internet Archive or a Word document) and end up with a printed book. 'Intermediate' formats like ebook and PDF can be useful too and there is a lot of cross-over between the various formats. Once you are familiar with the processes involved, it is fairly easy to generate all formats in relatively little time.
The goal is to document the various workflows involved in order to:
- Cut down the time to get to whatever format we want (EPUB/PDF/HTML/InDesign file)
- Ensure consistency and improve overall quality
