Hello

This is a lovely thread, thank you!

I lead a small team in Cape Town, South Africa, called Electric Book Works.
We do publishing strategy and production work for clients around the world
-- mostly in education and social impact. We specialise in publishing to
the web, in print, and in epub simultaneously, which is very important when
your books need to make an impact at scale. We spend a lot of time figuring
out how to make book features work well across all three formats.

I'm also involved with non-profit publishing in children's books and
healthcare.

Arthur
