Our reading behavior has changed due to the influence of new media and the book market is changing. I have developed a new reading concept that a challenge to the e-book is.
Welcome to the Battlefield:
Book vs. EBook.
Open City is a combination of a printed book, video clips and app. About a QR code on the cover, is the app "Open City" downloaded and installed on the iPhone. In the book special scanning surfaces are inserted, which recognizes the app and opens videos that can be played while reading. The design of the sequences is deliberately kept very abstract and simple.
It was very important for me that the videos can play while reading the site. The reader should not be affected when reading.
The app is easily implemented and self-explanatory.
This new reading concept is an experiment that could support the book market in terms of our interactive zeitgeist.
