A Unique E-Book Concept Merges Dead Tree Pulp With the Web



By Brian Howard | for Book Business [2]

Fast Company has an article and video today [3] on Polish art student Waldek Węgrzyn [4]‘s ebook/pbook hybrid, an El Lissitzky [5]-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?”
