That was fast. Awesome, eagle.

Now we need a web page. It can be simple but it needs to have the aesthetics and professional appearance that this books deserves.

Last time I created a small page I did it with iWeb. Embarassed

I had a quick look on the Interwebs but I did not find any good and free web page WYSIWIG tools. Maybe Google's Web Designer will do?

Arrow Who knows a decent free web page builder?
Arrow Who has some competence in (web) design?

I have Pelican installed on my server, and if someone wants to build a Pelican site for this, I can deploy it. I don't have time right now because I'm moving, but we can do something simple.

If we want to use something like what I did for previous.unixdude.net, I can copy that site too.

Luciano already has a website, which promotes his book - see
https://www.1000bit.it/books/nextbook.asp
And the contents of the website is in english language:
https://www.1000bit.it

It should be no problem to add a page for the international edition of the book in english...

May be another option. I asked him if he has a web space which he declined.

An English version of the web page is online at https://www.1000bit.it/books/nextbook.asp. The language is chosen based on visitor's IP.

eagle: I guess we do not need your web space for now. Thanks again.

Let's refer friends and family to the book's web page in order to get more subscribers.

Wow, so excited! Can't wait to get that.

I love my copy of "Digital Retro," and now I'll have a book dedicated to the NeXT too!
