Due to the high costs of shipping and bank payment, could you tell me if
the book Layouts in ConTeXt will be out as scheduled in a month (so I'll
wait to buy them both, saving some logistic money)?

As always, thanks for all you do.

Re: [NTG-context] Fonts in ConTeXt is now available from boekplan.com

2011-03-01 Thread Tom
Is this book going to be available in the U.S.? If so, where can I find it?
If not, may I suggest that you upload your PDFs to CreateSpace.com and have
it made available to buyers through Amazon.com. I normally don't like
limiting a book's availability to a single reseller, but for a niche book it
makes sense. There is no cost to upload the book but an optional $39 fee
that reduces print costs dramatically. There is no inventory cost as books
are printed only when customers order copies. If multiple titles are to be
published, using Lightning Source may make more sense for serving the U.S.
market.

[NTG-context] Fonts in ConTeXt is now available from boekplan.com

2011-02-28 Thread Taco Hoekwater


After some delays, thankfully the book Fonts in ConTeXt is now
finally available for immediate ordering.

Fonts in ConTeXt describes how to define and use fonts in ConTeXt
MkIV. In this book, for the first time all existing documentation
related to fonts has been combined into a single document. In 128
pages, the reader is guided through everything there is to know about
fonts in ConTeXt MkIV. The earlier chapters deal with the theory behind
the font subsystem of ConTeXt and explain how to use the font switching
macros. The later chapters deal with defining fonts, for both single
(symbolic) fonts and complete typescripts for font families. Finally,
there are chapters on extending the ConTeXT font system and font
installation.

Fonts in ConTeXt costs 19 euro + pp, and can be ordered from

  http://www.boekplan.com/


Hans and I have decided that there will not be a free PDF version;
ordering a hardcopy is the only way to get this book. Please note
that besides receiving a useful book, you will also be sponsoring
ConTeXt development by doing so!

I ordered as well - very nice and clean interface for the

Why don't put original signs and dedications of the authors on each
copy after, let's say, the first 5 orders after 1hour  the annuncement
in this mailing list ?

yes, but in this way less people will be interested, so less moneys
for developers, so less books,
so your collection will be small and with less value...

I've just ordered one. Great way of sponsoring ConTeXt.

Will be ordering also Layouts in ConTeXt as soon as it gets 
available!
