She included a Digital Liner Notes PDF file along with the MP3 files. At 17 pages, this would have been very expensive to print, and we were able to include an interactive table of contents, all her lyrics, images, hot links to her websites (including her cool new Japanese site), and even a printable insert and traycard for the fans to print and assemble their own physical copy.

The Beatles Records on Vee-Jay – Digital Edition

vjipad

“Hot Off The Presses” so to speak is the Digital redesign and reissue of a book I designed over 15 years ago. I did all the layout, design and image work.

Author Bruce Spizer, a New Orleans attorney, published this book as his first in a series of 9 books total, chronicling the recordings of the Beatles in America and UK. Primarily geared towards collectors, it also has lots of great stories about how the music was made. If you’re a Beatle fan, this is a must-have.

The original book was a heavy coffee-table book full of images and detailed descriptions of every conceivable label.  Bruce re-edited the book by placing all such information at the end of each chapter, giving the reader the opportunity to skip the label details without missing any of the stories. You can merely tap on the highlighted page number and skip forward to the next chapter, bypassing the highly detailed information. The digital book also gives the reader the ability to navigate pages by touching the screen. By merely touching the page reference, the desired page appears on the screen. And after checking out the new page, you can touch the GET BACK key to take you back to where you once belonged (or at least back to where you were reading). The digital book also gives you the ability to enlarge images. This is particularly helpful when you want to read small text in advertisements and on record labels. It’s a really cool feature that can’t be done in a regular book.

Dukes of Dixieland – Celebrating Satchmo

CELEBRATING SATCHMO, performed and taped at Old U.S. Mint in New Orleans, was produced for PBS. The DUKES OF DIXIELAND celebrate 40 years in 2014, and claim the spot as the oldest continuously operating jazz band in New Orleans. Featuring Louis Armstrong favorites such as Mack the Knife, What a Wonderful World, Struttin’ With Some Barbecue and You Rascal You, Celebrating Satchmo is a tribute to the influence the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner trumpeter had on the music of New Orleans, where he was born in 1901. This CD/DVD set was released in 4 different formats: an EP cardboard sleeve for each, a full jewelcase for each, a deluxe double disc digipak, and a USB. www.dukesofdixieland.com
