Art Publisher teNeues Launches First eBook

Art book publisher teNeues has released its first eBook, a digital version of Swarovski Crystal Palace, which launched in print earlier this month.

The book is about a collaborative project between crystal design company Swarovski and various designers, called  “Crystal Palace—The Art of Light and Crystal.”

The eBook was designed for the iPad and includes 200 illustrations from the print book, but readers can zoom in on the images in the digital book. In addition, the eBook has three background songs from music label California Sunset Records, as well as four videos of Nadja Swarovski working with contemporary designers.

The eBook is not cheap for a digital book in the App Store. It is available from iTunes for $ 18.99 until February 1st, when the price goes up to $ 24.99. Still, it is a bargain compared to the $95 print version of the book.

And teNeues is offering a very generous 20-page free preview, which is available as a free download here.
