Filipacchi Publishing, HFMUS’ book division, is launching a private-label newsstand on Zinio. The newsstand will offer 18 digital books from various Hachette magazines, such as Elle Decor, Woman’s Day and Car and Driver, organized by categories (Automotive, Decorating & Architecture, Do It Yourself and Photography). A larger offering of titles is available at hfmusbooks.zinio.com.
According to Filipacchi Publishing’s vp and publisher, Dorothee Walliser:
Until now, highly illustrated titles were typically the last to join the digital-book game since many formats don’t faithfully reproduce the design and layout of a book, and many e-readers were black-and-white until the iPad. However, our latest digital editions reproduce books true to the original, making them a great match for our illustrated coffee-table books on style, design and gorgeous interiors.
