Whether you’re writing fiction or non-fiction, a short story or long textbook, these templates and examples provide a fast and effective way to start composing your latest work. All the required components – such as chapters, sections, title pages, glossaries, acknowledgements -- are set out ready for your content. Just open the template and start writing!
an example how a book may look like
a lot of pgfornaments (without using pgfornaments thanks to Dr. Lian Tze Lim from Overleaf)
can be compiled into "periodical aureo" page size (almost canon conform) but with the switcher in main.tex file if you prefer a tablet or a screen reading.
the calligraphy used for letters can be switched off for people who are not used to read handwriting, same for audio links
(If you just want to read the book, it's best to download the PDF for offline reading, rather than waiting for it to render completely in the previewer on this page.)

Emerging technologies continue to transform the ways we collect, synthesize, disseminate, and consume information. These advances present both hazards and opportunities for the future of scholarly publication and communication. During this book sprint—presented by the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University and the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) and embedded in SSP’s 2016 annual meeting in Vancouver—we discussed issues of increasing scholarly impact and accessibility, wondered whether computers can make scholarly contributions that warrant co-authorship, speculated about what forms scholarly books may take in the future, and more.
Tackling ambitious and often ambiguous questions like these requires a diverse group of thinkers and writers and an innovative approach to writing. The book sprint method provides this innovation. Throughout the annual meeting, we held six miniature book sprints. During each sprint, we convened a group of four to six writers to tackle one of six big questions. Each sprint began with a facilitated conversation, followed by time for our writers to reflect and compose a piece of writing inspired by the conversation. Each piece was composed on Overleaf using this template specially created for this undertaking.
Conferences like the SSP annual meeting and scholarly publications themselves are often undergirded by spontaneous, inspiring, thought-provoking conversations among colleagues and collaborators, but those conversations are rarely captured and shared, and are often clouded in memory, even for the participants. The book sprint process hopefully absorbs some of the kismet and energy of those initial conversations, right at the start of a big idea, and makes it part of a more durable intellectual product—and a possible springboard for additional conversations in a broader range of times and places. The work would not have been possible without the contributions of our four core sprinters—Madeline Ashby, Annalee Newitz, Roopika Risam, and Ido Roll—who participated in every session, and the many SSP members who participated in the individual sprints and shared their expertise.
