I last looked at Issu several years ago when we were thinking about moving
UXPA's magazine (now uxpamagazine.org) online.

None of the publishing tools like Issu were at all accessible. Most were
barely usable. They are "PDF page turners" with poor navigation and poor
display options. They were pushed (mostly) by companies that did print
pre-press as an easy way to put your magazine up for online reading,
without any easy way to print the whole thing or download it (they saw this
as a rights management plus).

We ended up building our own.
