Ibooks fullscreen when epub opens

Hello

I want to create an epub for ibooks.
It should be full screen as it opens, and cover the entire screen with a background (ex. a red color or an image).

I tried Fixed Layout but it show the book background by default, and two pages beside each other.

I want epub works like pdf books.

how i can do this?

To do that you must specify a single page spread. Probably you should lock the orientation too.

For EPUB2, put this in your "com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml":

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<display_options>
    <platform name="*">
        <option name="fixed-layout">true</option>
        <option name="open-to-spread">false</option>
        <option name="orientation-lock">landscape-only</option>
    </platform>
</display_options>
For EPUB3:
Insert this in your .opf file (no need for the apple xml file anymore):
Code:
<meta property="rendition:layout">pre-paginated</meta>
<meta property="rendition:spread">none</meta>
<meta property="rendition:orientation">landscape</meta>
