290: Embedded Book Preview

–AS many of you know I love exploring digital possibilities for artists. I've explored making books for the Kindle as a way to access paintings in a variety of locales. I can show my paintings from my Kindle ebook, 53 Paintings, anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or computer (any device that has the Kindle reader which is a free download).

Amazon announced a new embed feature and I thought I would try it out with this blog entry. I'm working on a Kindle ebook outlining my acrylic texturing process but it is still in production. So until it's available here is the embed of my oil painting collection:

Ideally this will be a good way to easily preview Kindle books even though the pages previewed are somewhat limited. This book only previews 12 pages. There were several links in the twelve previewed pages and they worked well which might present opportunities to link to important aspects of your artistic project. Let me know if it works for you and how you might envision using this technology.

  1. This is one of my prized possessions. Very much interested in the next one about acrylic textures.

    1. Thank you so much, Padmaja. You're enthusiasm is a great incentive to finish the new book.


Thanks for your comments!
