In 2009, The Distributed Gallery in Los Angeles printed a small book to accompany my show there.
A PDF version was posted by Sean Dockray, who ran the gallery. This disappeared for awhile but Dockray has reposted it. [Update, Nov. 2020: The e-rat.org links disappeared again.] As an experiment/learning adventure I converted the PDF to epub using Sigil. I've attempted to contact Dockray a few times but as of yet this epub isn't "official." I'm posting it as personal documentation and giving full credits to Dockray and others, as shown in the front matter of the book.
Some notes on the epub conversion:
Calibre converts the PDF to epub, consisting of an HTML file and images. Editing the HTML and CSS is very similar to a working on web pages. Sigil has a WYSIWYG editor that can be used for this. I broke the single large HTML file into sections to facilitate creating a table of contents. Sigil generates the ToC automatically and that file can be edited separately.
The only thing really laborious was the images. I sized them at 600 pixels wide and added captions as part of the image. This required making screenshots and finding the right font size to be legible in an e-reader.
To test the epub I viewed it in Calibre, in a Kobo e-reader, and in Adobe Digital Editions. Calibre converts the epub to .mobi without any hitches, but it makes the images resizable in a way I don't care for much, so I'm not posting a mobi version.
Some notes on the book:
The interviews and selected blog commentary reflect a certain status quo at the end of the blogosphere era, before the complete hegemony of Facebook as a place for artists. :(
Much of the discussion centers on "showing the blog in the gallery" and "showing GIFs in the gallery," ideas that were later picked up and/or repackaged by others under the banner of so-called post-internet art. It's kind of a time capsule, even though I'm still doing most of the same things online and in galleries. The main improvement I have to report is that a used Amazon Fire tablet makes a much better GIF display device than burning DVDs.
