When the IK Foundation publishes books they are produced to achieve the highest level of quality in terms of content as well as of design; we practice a classic craft in which great attention is paid to the choice of paper, typefaces, printing and binding to provide the reader with the very best experience. Our books are made to last for centuries, as they are often used as reference works – we are proud of this tradition and will continue to uphold it in the future.
iBooks have other advantages, including the fact that one can read them freely in both the published original text and in nearly a hundred different languages (computer translated basic versions), they are available to all and one can “carry with one” thousands of pages as long as one has access to the Internet. Perhaps their greatest advantage is the combination of being able so easily to look for hundreds of thousands of search words via iIndex and to get straight to the relevant page. At the bottom of each iBook page the “Index Tag Cloud” also shows which indexed words there are on each page.
The possibilities are endless, and we ask You as a reader to browse around in order to see what The IK Workshop Society has to offer – Add Knowledge, iFacts, iMaps and iIndex, directly related to iBooks.
We see iBooks as inspiring sources of information and as research tools. Should You wish to experience the printed volumes, they can generally be purchased with an iFellow discount in The IK Shop or are available in major libraries around the world.
