ePUB Magazine

We at the ePUB group realized that the Government designers and publishers of the United States could be reached on a larger scale if we pooled our knowledge into an
e-zine. The result of our effort is found here. In ePUB Illustrated you will find the latest electronic publishing information and news of current trends in the industry.

ePUB Illustrated is currently on a brief hiatus while our content is refined. In the meantime, take a moment to browse the Archives by clicking below. There is a brief summary provided of the articles inside each issue to aid your search.
