FILIPACCHI PUBLISHING ANNOUNCES NEW DIGITAL PLATFORM
FOR PURCHASING AND READING LATEST BOOKS
NEW YORK – November 4, 2010 – Filipacchi Publishing, the book division within Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. (HFMUS), today announced the launch of a private-label newsstand (PLN), offering 18 digital books from ELLE DECOR, Woman’s Day and Car and Driver. In addition to its digital books currently sold as ebooks, iBooks and the Cookvook, Filipacchi Publishing’s PLN features an eighteen-title collection in four categories: Automotive (i.e.; American Road Warriors), Decorating & Architecture (i.e.; Glamour: Making it Modern), Do It Yourself (i.e.; A Ghostly Good Time) and Photography (i.e.; Ladies or Gentlemen). Additionally, a larger offering is available at, hfmusbooks.zinio.com/, with titles ranging from $10.99 to $65.00.
“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,” said Dorothee Walliser, Vice President/Publisher, Filipacchi Publishing. “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.”
Through its new private-label newsstand on Zinio, Filipacchi Publishing’s digital content can be read on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and other touch-screen and tablet devices. Zinio provides additional reading access to Filipacchi Publishing’s multi-platform enabled portfolio of iconic books.
