Blurb's New PDF to Book Feature

Finally! Blurb has released their PDF to Book feature!

This means we can design using either their pre-made Indesign templates or their guidelines to create our own and then upload our PDFs!

Say bye-bye to that whole export to pdf-import to photoshop-export to png-import to BookSmart process. Thank goodness.

For a designer I can immediately see two great things:

1. Greater control of a book cover's design including the spine; before you were limited to the typefaces and layouts of BookSmart.

2. Typographic treatment will be more flexible and I hope reproduce with higher quality.



I love it when workflow is streamlined and technology works to make a designer's job easier.
