Fast Company has an article and video today on Polish art student Waldek Węgrzyn‘s ebook/pbook hybrid, an El Lissitzky-inspired project for his masters degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. Węgrzyn’s project, a more or less hardwired physical book that interacts with a digital interface as it’s read, is beyond mesmerizing. Plus, we give high marks to any and all El Lissitzky references.
From the article:
“The concept is as obvious as it is radical: instead of making readers choose between physical and digital, why not give them the best of both?”
