    Default iBook on Copperplate Script Instruction

    Hi Folks,

    It has been a long time. First, let me say that I am amazed at the number of page views for my post on ‘Engraver's Script Instruction’. Over 21,000 page views! That is truly amazing. I am very happy to announce that I have completed an interactive Copperplate instructional ‘iBook’ for the iPad platform. The iBook will be available for download on the iPad in the very near future. It contains most of my previously available material including instructional text, images and videos. It will be a ‘FREE’ download and just like my previous post there are no strings attached. I am not selling anything.

    I produced a short video clip about a month ago showing what my interactive iBook will look like on the iPad:

    https://vimeo.com/43948060

    This book represents hundreds of hours of work since I began documenting my technique back in 2000. At present the book is over 80 electronic pages. The iBook was made on my iMAC using Apple’s iBook Author software. The only limitation of this truly remarkable format is that you will need an iPad to view the book. It will not work, at least at the present time, on any other tablet. It needs to be viewed on an iPad. It will not work on another

    The book has been uploaded to Apple and I am awaiting their review/approval of the file. I will let you know when it goes LIVE on the iBook Store……..it is not available yet. For those that do not have an iPad you may download and print the complete 87 page Workshop Handout in pdf format at:

    Why would this not work on a mac laptop like a macbook pro?

    Hi,

    Thanks to everyone for the kind words.

    Tim, to my knowledge at present you can't view this kind of book on a MAC. I sincerely hope that will change in the near future.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Thanks so much for this great information. I downloaded for print and has inspired a teaching lesson that I've alluded to in another thread.
    You are very kind Sir.
