Book Architecture

Last week I attended a two day symposium on the Art and Science of Digital Reading. It was a fascinating collection of topics and speakers. The topics ranged from the science of eyesight to how we actually design typefaces and apps for tablets. There is so much technology happening right now that is changing how we interact with digital type! The conference confirmed my interest in adding ebook design to my skill set. It will be long road before I consider myself an expert ebook designer, but the sooner I start the closer I will come to my goal.

On a great side note, during one of the talks a photo of the exterior of the Kansas City public library was shown. Isn’t it the coolest library ever?! It makes me want to move to KC, Missouri just so I can go to this library on a weekly basis.
