about us

PubCoder's shelf is the easiest way to have your books on your device.
We use it with a light interface, dedicated to dyslexic people.
You just enter a code and you can read your book. Can't be more intuitive....

about us

Working with Shelf and PubCoder allowed us to show our entire catalogue into a functional and personalised app. Through Shelf we can now distribute all our interactive books in a simple and effective way for the user.

Paola Frignani (Digital producer - De Agostini)

about us

Since Scott McCloud published "Reinventing Comics", the challenge has been to find new interactive formats for "sequential art". Shelf allowed me to easily align my work with the UX of Comixology, Marvel and D.C. with a very cost effective solution.
