Book design inspired by Edward Tufte
Edward Tufte is a pioneer in the field of data visualization, and his works inspired the creation of two LaTeX classes for books and handouts.
Here we present the excellent sample book produced by the The Tufte-LaTeX Developers pre-loaded into Overleaf (formerly writeLaTeX) for you to use as a starting point for your own work.
Simply click the button above to use Overleaf to create and edit your article - there's nothing to install and no sign up required. When you're finished, use our integrated publish to figshare option to publish your work freely online.
Click here if you'd like to try the corresponding Tufte handout design on Overleaf.
PS: If you're new to LaTeX, our free online LaTeX course covers all the steps you need to get you started.

LaTeX ePub / eBook Template
This document shows how you can get ePub/eBook-like formatting in LaTeX with the memoir document class. You can't yet export directly to ePub from writeLaTeX, but you can export to PDF. To get ePub, you can download the LaTeX source from writeLaTeX and run it through a format conversion tool, such as htlatex to get HTML, and then go from HTML to ePub with a tool like Sigil or Calibre. See this thread on Stack Overflow for more advice.
