Free lynda.com Videos: EPUB Typography
At first glance, the topic of EPUB typography might seem to be the InDesign equivalent of herding cats. After all, when it comes to reflowable EPUBs, rendering varies form device to device, and users can change the fonts, size of the text, etc. But there are steps you can follow when producing ebooks that will make for better looking type. And in fact, Nigel French has put together a video series devoted to the topic of EPUB typography over at lynda.com. Among the free videos from the series are ones on choosing serif vs. sans serif typefaces and why you might want to avoid using drop caps in ebooks.
