Penguin UK on iPad

A brief presentation that includes a children’s book, some reference stuff, and one piece of fiction (a Twilight knock-off) at 1:30 (courtesy of Engadget).

Pretty but reminiscent of mid-nineties multimedia CD-ROMs — a world of over-wrought animation and mystery-meat navigation. The web succeeded where “multimedia” failed; I’d prefer that Penguin’s efforts more closely resembled HTML than Shockwave and Flash.

But regardless, I think these efforts do indicate that there is a future for book cover designers, especially those who have some interest in crossing over into interactive design.
