Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady makes digital foray

A new digital edition of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady is now available for iPad owners.

RosettaBooks has used Apple’s digital book creation app – iBooks Author – to publish the title.

In addition to the four-colour high resolution art, the Multi-Touch edition features hundreds of pop up pieces of information about poets, plants and places that Edith Holden visited and loved.

The classic property will be one of the first titles available in this format for the new iBook platform.

The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady is based on a 1906 hand-illustrated diary by Edith Holden, and has sold millions of copies in its print editions.

The merchandising programme has, to date, been led by a paper goods line at Marks & Spencer.

New products will be showcased at next week’s Spring Fair including tapestry and printed cushions, greetings cards, kitchen textiles and ceramics.

In the US, new partnerships have been formed with Sellers for calendars and burton+Burton for a new gifting range.

"We are delighted that Country Diary will be one of the very first titles available in the iBook format, making this charming property available to an even wider global audience," said Nicholas Durbridge, chairman of The Copyrights Group.
