Currently, the brand is specified in each book's publican.cfg (which is
generated by configure, and can be edited by "make www-cli"). It works,
so realistically it's a low priority to improve it, given everything
else on the plate.

You're welcome to submit a pull request to change it to use the local
brand directory. Be sure to consider that each book comes in multiple
formats (and potentially translations, though they're out of date at
this point, which is a whole separate discussion worth raising at some
point), and add anything generated to .gitignore.
