Using Pressbooks to Publish Digital ‘Singles’

Newsweek Europe used Pressbooks to produce a series of short ebooks (and a few print book prototypes) “at the speed of news.”

The digital publishing program publishes a book every few weeks–each of them long-form journalism on a specialized topic in current events, written by one of Newsweek’s correspondents.
