About us

Since 2006, Electric Book Works has created beautiful, effective publications for the web, for mobile devices, and in print.

Electric Book Works is synonymous with publishing innovation. It is the birthplace of acclaimed initiatives like Book Dash, Bettercare, and Paperight, and has helped dozens of publishers, retailers and organisations build their digital capacity through training, consulting and product development.

Our team of publishing experts – from design, editorial and software backgrounds – work with our clients to invent, plan and deliver complex publishing projects. We also develop innovative strategies, workflows and training programmes that empower people and improve sustainability.

We also maintain the open-source Electric Book workflow and Electric Book Manager.
