Book Palette

By Jumsoft

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


With the new, revolutionary iBooks Author app, anyone can create and publish great Multi-Touch books for iPad, including you. Jumsoft swiftly offers you an enhanced experience in book creation with 25 beautiful templates for iBooks Author.

Each template included in the Book Palette app features an assortment of stylish and modern page layouts. You can use them as a starting point and go from there by typing or pasting your own text, adding or removing text boxes, and dropping images or other media.

Although the standard designs included in Book Palette are very polished, you are not expected to settle for default. Most objects in the templates can be easily reshaped, moved, or removed, and colors can be changed. Use a variety of pre-designed text styles or opt for fonts of your choice to format your text for the best effect.

* Requires iBooks Author.

Customer Reviews

Nice selection

Very well done. Yes, the templates do follow Apple's textbook style format, which may be at odds with the way some wish to use them. That said, I have been able to modify them to suit my needs. These templates are not, nor should one expect them to be, substitutions for imagination and original work. Very much like iWeb templates, use the basic theme, add some imagination and make them your own.

Addendum: My original purchase of Book Palette I felt was a good deal. This update gets you 5 new templates at no extra charge. A good deal made even better now. They still follow the same format as all other iBooks Author templates but can be easily modified in both portrait and landscape orientation. The complaints I have read here seem to be about the format being the same with all templates. This is true, after all, it is a template, a framework, you have to design the book. I feel this is a very good value.

Saving to My Templates folder Error - how to fix it.

First time template saving error can be fixed by saving at least one file as template from iBook Author (File ->Save as template…). This is only needed if you have no iBook Author templates folder present on your HD. It is a good idea to follow this procedure before saving the templates from Book Pallete app (When in Book Pallette -> Select All -> Save as Templates). Alternativelly, as DVMagic (see Feb 3, 2012 post) mentioned if you have no "My templates" folder, you will have to create it manually. The path would be similar to this ~/Library/Application Support/iBooks Author/Templates/My Templates.
