Fearless Editing clearly articulates the basic concepts underlying editing techniques and demonstrates their application for newspapers, public relations, magazines and Web pages. This text takes a conceptual approach that integrates verbal skills with visual elements. Unlike other texts that are clearly designed for print, this book includes multi-media applications in every chapter.

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
