So much information, so little time. The authors wrote in a very straightforward, humorous way. I tried to reflect that in the design. It is very open, easy to follow, and navigate.
Almost every word in this title is a fact — websites, addresses, and phone numbers. It is constantly being updated. The design of this book needed to be flexible when information changed, colorful to keep the reader interested and very organized so the reader wouldn’t get lost in the pages or on the road!
We are experimenting with offering this title as an interactive eBook as well as the traditional print version.
Lisa Foster’s hiking guide illustrates and discusses every trail in RMNP, even those not found on the RMNP official map, but can be found on USGS or National Geographic maps of the area. This title is in it’s 6th revision as of August 2013. A 2nd edition is due out 2015 when RMNP celebrates is 100th anniversary. There are also several smaller eBooks created for this title focusing on specific topics: Kid-Friendly Hikes, Hikes Under 3 miles, Technical Hikes, and Long’s Peak specifically. This book is crammed with so much information, my challenge was to get the reader to a specific hike or area efficiently, incorporating maps and images to illustrate the trail.
