All LDP’s titles are now available as print replica ebooks

LDP had intended to focus its publication efforts on ebooks, although as things turned out the paperbacks and hardbacks rather established their own momentum. However with the publication of our latest title, we are making efforts to restore the place of ebooks in our portfolio. As a first step, we have created print replica ebooks using Amazon’s KDP software. These are available for a range of devices, such as Kindle Fire tablets and reading apps for iphones, ipads, Macs and PCs. We are currently looking into different routes for making epub versions available.

The print replica ebooks have the advantage of retaining the page formatting of the printed versions of the book and can also be in colour at lower cost. It is not surprising that paperbacks have proved to be the most popular LDP format, but we hope that the print replica ebooks provide a cheaper alternative, and in colour. Details of the available formats can be found by following the links below to the book pages on LDP’s website.

LDP’s latest title, which we are proud to have worked on:

Drawing for Science, Invention & DiscoveryPaul Carney
Explores 9 processes that drive innovation, invention and discovery. They are compared from both a STEM and an art perspective and exercises to develop these competences are provided.

… and we remain equally proud of our previous titles
