No specific expertise of digital technology, or indeed traditional publishing technology, is required. The Toolkit provides hands-on practical advice and tools, focusing on working solutions for low-budget, small-edition publishing. Everything in the Hybrid Publishing Toolkit is based on real-world projects with art and design publishers. Editorial scenarios include art and design catalogues and periodicals, research publications, and artists’/designer’s books. About the authors: Digital Publishing Toolkit Collective, consists of: Marc de Bruijn, Liz Castro, Florian Cramer, Joost Kircz, Silvio Lorusso, Michael Murtaugh, Pia Pol, Miriam Rasch and Margreet Riphagen Editors: Joe Monk, Miriam Rasch, Florian Cramer and Amy Wu Images: Medamo and Kimmy Spreeuwenberg Print design: Medamo and Kimmy Spreeuwenberg EPUB design: André Castro Cover design: Medamo and Kimmy Spreeuwenberg Publisher: Institute of Network Cultures, Amsterdam Supported by: SIA National Regieorgaan Praktijkgericht Onderzoek ISBN 978-90-822345-3-4 (print) ISBN 978-94-92171-01-6 (epub) For background material, blog posts, videos and the software created within this Digital Publishing Toolkit project please visit: http://networkcultures.org/digitalpublishing/.

Digital Publishing Toolkit – The Blog Posts

About this publication: This publication contains the findings obtained in a two years research and have been documented on the blog http://networkcultures.org/digitalpublishing. Digital Publishing Toolkit: the Blog Posts collects all these blog posts. This EPUB consists of texts, images and links to video files. The videos themselves have been omitted, to prevent the EPUB file from being too memory intensive to load on some reading devices. It includes reflections, reports and tools. The blog posts are arranged in reverse chronological order, with the exception of the earliest post, as we thought it would be most appropriate to begin the collection with the original first post.

On http://networkcultures.org/digitalpublishing you can find more information about this two-year research project. Such as registration videos of the three conferences we organized, a direct link to our GitHub repository, and various resources related to hybrid publishing.

Not only we have researched digital publishing, but we have also conducted various digital publishing experiments – such as this Digital Publishing Toolkit: the Blog Posts publication. In addition to the physical book From Print to Ebooks: a Hybrid Publishing Toolkit for the Arts, we have released this specific publication through several different channels: LuluIssuuScribdPDF and in EPUB.

The approach we have adopted suits our main conclusion, namely that the best strategy is a publishing workflow that utilizes a variety of output formats – i.e. a multi-channel form of publishing. Developing a hybrid publishing strategy, which is open to new digital forms, is an on going focus for the Institute of Network Cultures.
