    Animated book covers – what format to work in?

    akgould

      Hi, for a class assignment I am having the students design book covers (that incorporate motion) along with a TOC and sample chapter opener. What format should they use for the final – is it an ePub, an interactive PDF or a single folio? I assume it could be any of these but I've confused myself over which format is best. It seems like some book covers don't show up in iBooks (except as a thumbnail) and I'm not sure where animated book covers are showing up these days, except for blog posts. I know magazines like Esquire have animated covers, is that the best option for this?

       

      I basically want the students to be able to show their animated cover plus sample interior pages on a device like the iPad (not Kindle).

       

      Thanks!
