The advent of hypertext and the new art of interaction design signal the dawn of a post-book epoch. The evolution of the bound book has much to teach us about this important moment in publishing history and how to best consider, design, and guide the nascent post-book experience.

We will focus on the User Experience Design opportunities this moment affords. Innovative products and features such as content-rich apps and shared marginalia will be presented, evaluated, and discussed. A case will be made for a rich ecosystem of e-reading solutions. Particular attention will be paid to the ‘armchair apps’ that Exprima Media is developing for publishers and authors.
