Blurb has today announced that they will be providing a publishing option to iPad.
In the first iteration photographers who have used Blurb’s Bookify and BookSmart software will be able to publish in a way that maintains the formatting of the print version.
Emails go out next month with the details and support for photographers who upload a PDF rather than using the Blurb software will come later. It is unclear at the moment about whether this creates something sold through the iBookstore or whether Blurb will have their own app reader. Since they do say that such books will also be for sale through Blurb’s own store, I suspect they are going to be ePubs sold through the iBookstore.
More great news for photographers from the digital revolution in publishing.
