Publish and sell your professional art book

BookBaby writers can now publish and sell their eBooks and printed books in the world’s biggest bookstores. Not only will we convert your art book into an eBook and sell it digitally in 60+ stores, with our new Print On Demand technology, you can now sell your printed art book (book-by-book) direct to your readers, without having to pay for large print runs, warehousing, or fulfillment.

Most art books require fixed layout file conversion in order to turn it into an eBook. The technical experts at BookBaby can convert your high-resolution PDF files into an eBook with a Fixed Layout. This is for iBooks only. We do not currently produce Fixed Layout files for the Kindle Fire or the Barnes & Noble Nook reader.
