Pushing CSS Hard With Print and eBooks

We wanted to create some marketing brochures for our products. Because we are in the business of digital content production we decided to lift our game and see what was possible with both print and fixed layout ePub3 with a single production method.

Here is the story of the exercise. You can download the PDFs at the bottom of the page.

The interesting thing here is we used the same CSS for both the eBook and Print book generated with PrinceXML. The only difference is the drop shadows are not in the PDF versions, but that is hardly noticed.
OK the PDFs are RGB not CMYK, but they uploaded to SlideShare and sparkled merrily away.
