E-book file type icon E-book file type

File extension tpz is nowadays mainly related to proprietary format used by Amazon Kindle called Topaz.

It is a completely different format from AZW, often used on older books that are scanned pages. It uses a different compression method than standard MOBI format and it inherently has embedded fonts in the file allowing more complex display using font sets and characters that are not standard to Kindle.
