“Publishers and developers embrace ‘unprintable’ fiction“ is a post in the Guardian by Richard Lea that will get your week off to a fascinating start. It puts the spotlight on some folks in the industry who are “experimenting with technology to publish ‘unprintable’ books – including a love story told through Google street view and a prison break with swappable recipes.”
Visual Editions, a publisher of unconventional books, has teamed up with Google Creative Lab in Sydney to create Editions at Play, a publishing project and online bookstore that sells books that “are delightful, surprising and completely unprintable.” The idea is to enable readers to feel comfortable curling up with a book on their sofas or armchairs – only doing it all with their smartphones.
