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.

Check out Sheila Bounford’s column in Futurebook to learn more about the Digital Insights program at Newsweek Europe and its rapid-product-to-market publishing model.

You can browse and buy the Newsweek Insights book series at http://www.newsweekinsights.com/books/. Twelve books are available so far.
