Ebook formats

The majority of our ebooks are EPUBs, which is the industry standard format.

EPUBs are reflowable, allowing the reader to resize text so that it runs over a greater or lesser number of pages, and allows readers to adjust other page settings to their liking. It is supported by Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) software and can be read on most devices, including iOS devices as well as Kobo readers, Sony readers and Barnes & Noble’s Nook.

We do not directly sell illustrated fixed layout ebooks on the Pan Macmillan Australia website as Adobe Digital Editions does not support this format. However, fixed layouts are supported by Apple Books, Amazon, Kobo and Google Play, and therefore can be purchased directly through these stores. The dropdown ‘Buy’ button on the ebook page can direct you the etailer of your choosing.
