iBooks Author Starter Kit

This book is available for download with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. Apple Books on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


The iBooks Author Starter Kit is a beginner’s guide to creating Multi-Touch books for teaching and learning. It walks a user through a set of step-by-step activities, and provides all the materials — an iBooks Author template, colour palette, copy decks, images, videos, keynote presentation and more — needed to create an interactive book entitled “The World of Living Gardens”.

Update Needed

Font substitution looks to be messing up the layout. Some text is hidden behind graphics and other text just doesn't fit in the text area it should. If anyone should be able to produce an iBook it should be Apple.

Bad Text Wrapping

Both on my iPad and Mac the text in ths book wrap off the screen so that every line is missing a few characters or words.
I assume it is just out of date with the latest version of iBooks but this is not a good advert for iBooks Author as a tool.
