While our special March issue is all about the different forms books are taking these days, i wanted to remind you of this great piece illustrator Jean Gralley wrote for us six years ago (pre-iPad!) about the possibilities in/for digital picture books. Have a look.
The first coverage I can remember us giving to e-publishing was back in 1997, when Sarah Ellis examined the digital reading experience via a Bjarne Reuter book that was available only via email or as a series of webpages on Dutton’s website. My favorite line: “I curled up in an armchair, and for the first time ever I actually put my laptop on my lap.”
Is anyone else getting device fatigue? I never thought I could have too many Apple things but, with my recent acquisition of an iPhone, I do. I feel like my trusty iPod puts on the Sad Mac look every time I put her in my briefcase while that shiny trollop iPhone nestles next to my heart.
