new video ebook

With some help from InDesign 5.5 and OxygenAuthor, I have created a revolutionary video ebook, Rome on Foot, featuring 36 short travel videos along with extensive text, maps and hundreds of photos packed into 600 electronic pages, describing six walking tours in Rome.
I do believe this is the first time that dozens of short movies have been included in a travel book, bringing the sights to life as if you are actually walking through the city. See a multimedia preview of the book:
Walking is the only way to explore the many attractions of Rome, one of the world's best cities to discover on foot: it’s compact center is filled with ancient landmarks produced by 2,500 years of astounding history, and Rome’s modern side is equally fascinating. Rome on Foot is entirely devoted to efficient step-by-step walking routes that cover the historic attractions and contemporary delights – and the video is amazing!
Reading about a new place before the journey is challenging because you cannot visualize or grasp the sights, but with this video ebook everything becomes clear. It is the next-best thing to being there: the short movies, photos and detailed text create a vivid picture of Rome's attractions and present the best ways to discover this wonderful city. After your journey the book delivers rich memories, and for an armchair traveller it brings you there vicariously.
Rome on Foot is only $4.99 and is now available at Apple’s iBookstore, easily reached from the iPhone, iPad or iPodtouch. At this time only Apple supports ebooks enriched with video.
The book, created by Dennis Callan, is available on Amazon for the Kindle, with full contents but no video:
Rome on Foot is also for sale at Barnes & Noble for the Nook:
