bookleteer is designed to help all kinds of people and organisations to create and publish their own publications as Diffusion Shareables – eBooks and StoryCubes – that are free to download, print out and make up.
The publications can be shared freely (by email, post, photocopy etc) at next to no cost to readers or printed in short runs using bookleteer’s exclusive Publish & Print On Demand service. bookleteer enables writers and artists to create a hybrid of analogue and digital media, using the reach of the internet with the pleasure of tactile forms.
Diffusion eBooks and StoryCubes were created and developed by Proboscis in 2000. They offer a flexible and dynamic way to share ideas with people all over the world, including places that it would not be economical, or physically possible, to distribute traditional publications to.
Diffusion eBooks and StoryCubes can be shared electronically or as material objects – scanned, emailed, posted or photocopied.
