FAQs

Printing books and selling online is complicated! And eBooks... wow! Let’s cover some frequently asked questions:

eBook formats

There are two types of eBooks; reflowable and fixed layout. Learn more here. We provide both ePub formats, which you can use in Apple iBooks or Google Play (on Android).

Kindle users

Kindle has its own unique file type and format for eBooks called Mobi, which we don't sell on this website. Need the Kindle edition? You can buy it on Amazon.

B&W Edition of Paperback

In March 2020, four months after launch, we released a reduced price, black and white edition of the original 6"x9” paperback, printed and distributed by Amazon with Prime delivery available. Buy now on Amazon. Prime

Please note: the images in the B&W Edition are in black and white. This is a design book where colours are referenced in the text and images. While the content still works and looks great in black and white, this is a cheaper version of the original book to make the book more accessible to a wider audience.

Please also note: The book you buy on this website is stocked and shipped by us. The B&W Edition is printed and shipped by Amazon — we never see or touch the book you order from Amazon. Any problems with your Amazon order you'll need to reach out to Amazon to resolve.

A note on the Paperback book

Unfortunately, deviations in paperback books can happen in the printing process. While the inner pages of every book we sell should be the same, some books may have a slight misalignment of text on the spine. But we stand by the quality of the content, and hope it doesn't affect your enjoyment of the book.
