The traditional book publishing + the new ebook technology

Zum Zum Books combines some of the best aspects of traditional book publishing with the new ebook technology to produce what we call handmade digital books.

The art we use in our ebooks is 'real art,' the kind you can put in a frame and hang on the wall. A lot more than pixels and vectors, or computer generated design, every piece of art in Zum Zum Books is unique and original.
