Future of the Book

The goal of this project was to create a concept for the book of the future. How would it look like? Which characteristics of the current types of book would still be visible in the book of the future? My concept was about merging the analog with the digital book. I envisioned the analog book as the center of reading, the digital acts as an addition to that. Digital spreads that are related to the current, open-faced spread are shown above the analog book. This uses a network of spreads from different or the same books that can be created by one or multiple people. With this manner of reading it is easier to read more of the same subject and make all kinds of connections but still enjoy the traditional way of reading.
