Since 2008, Scott Dutton has been building ebooks to a higher standard.

With our feet planted both in print and digital, we endeavour to bring a better reader experience to modern devices. Without pushing a specific platform, we examine the competing ebook formats and the devices they run on, outlining their strengths and weaknesses.


ePUB Logo

With ePUB 3 superseding ePUB 2 in 2011, eBooks benefitted from an updated standard based on a subset of HTML 5. For readers, this meant better page layout and typography. Combined with faster devices with larger memories, we’re that much closer to eBooks which rival their print versions.

ePUB 3 is used by most non-Kindle readers, including Apple iOS and MacOS Books, Kobo, Nook and other apps which run on Android, Kobo, MacOS and Windows.

The best reading experience is in Apple’s Books apps. They’re the most standards-compliant programs out there currently.

On some devices/programs you will need to choose Publisher or Original Fonts to have the reading experience we intend.

If you download one of our ePUBs onto an older device, OS or program and it does not display properly, you may only have an ePUB 2-compatible device or program. And not all ePUB 3 readers are created equal. Windows especially has a lack of ePUB 3 readers that format the page properly and use the typography we’ve specified.


AZW3 Logo

AZW3 is Amazon/Kindle’s latest format.

AZW3 is built on ePUB 3, but with a Kindle proprietary wrapper that can contain DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection. We convert from ePUB to AZW3, and the reading experience should be comparable to the best ePUB 3 devices and programs.

You will need to choose Publisher Fonts to have the reading experience we intend.


KFX Logo

KFX is one of Amazon/Kindle’s current formats. If you can’t load an AZW3 onto your device, KFX should be supported.

KFX is built on ePUB 3, but with a Kindle proprietary wrapper that can contain DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection. We convert from ePUB to KFX, and the reading experience should be comparable to the best ePUB 3 devices and programs.

You will need to choose Publisher Fonts to have the reading experience we intend.
