It really all depends on the book.
Details like press run size, whether you are distributing your books or want an outside service to do that, how much you can invest up front, how much storage space you have, and if the book has special paper or binding all can influence your decision. Your best decision may be to choose both options if you need lots of books up front, but want the convenience of a publishing service down the road.
False—Most do not.
E-books function more like web pages than books. Readers have control over the type size and typeface, so the page look varies from e-reader to e-reader. There are some e-pub formats that look more like the designed print book, but these formats are compatible to a smaller percentage of e-readers.
False—Font quality and performance can vary wildly.
Fonts are programs that operate within your computer’s applications. As with all software, some programs are more well thought out and executed than others. Some have better letter spacing, some come with only all caps, some do not offer boldface or italic or commonly, bold italic. This is why test-driving a font may be a good idea.
