Fixed-layout eBooks are created with the exact graphic design layout as their print book counterparts that cannot be altered by any reader, as opposed to the standard “reflowable” formats in eBook files. Fixed-layout eBooks are a popular format today, especially for children’s picture books, cookbooks, coffee table books, travel books and business/textbooks, which contain heavy formatting, and lots of tables and graphics.
