Sample – Composition No. 1

I just discovered that there’s an iPad version of Marc Saporta’s Composition No.1 (one of the example boxed texts from Visual Editions we used in class last week). Here’s the marketing blurb for their digital version: The Composition No. 1 iPad app looks at different ways of bringing to life the book’s non-linear reading experience. The app brings the idea of “reading the book in any order” to a new level, forcing the whole randomising experience onto the reader. How does it work? The pages don’t stop moving unless you physically hold them down with your finger, forcing you to engage with the book in a completely new way. And yes, those letter landscapes do still play some role.
