After putting a downloadable PDF brochure on the website last week. I’ve been working on a flip book type interactive version, that can be posted on websites or sent out as an e-mail.
This simple online version of a paper brochure can be read on screen, with pages that turn just like a real glossy magazine.

If you need a download version click on the PDF link. This can be printed out. Downloadable Brochure
