"For the launch of the Global eBook report 2016, we were able to address a full house of interested book professionals in a special session at the London Book Fair. Compiling a report of some 250 pages, with 50 graphs and tables, on market developments from across the world was an exciting experience, as it has been every year since 2011. This year was different as we were able to use Booktype as our authoring system for the first time. Frankly, we were a little nervous at first, but today I can relax and congratulate the Booktype team on their great system and wonderful support!” Rüdiger Wischenbart
