I was looking for a way to give our authors a simple, powerful way to edit and create books and Booktype is it!

Booktype is becoming the ideal platform for open publishing. With the booksprint methodology, Booktype enabled us generate the Spending Data Handbook in a few days, while remaining open to feedback and development.

I was impressed at how seamless and almost invisible Booktype was in the project. It was very empowering for all involved, it seemed to remove hierarchy and made the whole editing process very transparent.

For those disappointed in the current selection of self-publishing tools, there's a new option. Booktype is a self-hosted, open source and collaborative authoring tool for e-books and print books. Think of it like a Wordpress for books.

There is a demonstrated need for Booktype, a software that resolves challenging issues in collaborative knowledge production resulting in high quality print and ebooks. Booktype is an important new approach in knowledge production and dissemination.

Booktype will make it easier for companies and people to collate, organise and edit content, and make it ready for publication. Collaboration doesn’t just make the book better, it also makes writing books quicker.
Booktype is the present and future of collaborative publishing, and we could not live without it in the work we do. It bakes the values of the open web and the passion of the free knowledge movement into a platform that aggregates knowledge while catalyzing communities.

Really excited about the launch of Booktype. Adam Hyde and crew have been leading the way in collaborative book writing for years. Booktype takes it to the next level.

More books are being written by multiple authors. An issue we're going to face in the future is more frequent updates to content as well as short-form content that can grow over time. Booktype responds to those needs very well.

Booktype is an exciting new innovative platform that is bringing book production online and is an important new form of free culture and free knowledge production.
