The Photographer’s Eye, by Michael Freeman, is one of Ilex Photo’s perennial bestsellers, Since it’s release it has been translated into 22 languages across the world and with it’s sales measured in the hundreds of thousands.
Now it’s available as an enhanced app for the iPad and iPad 2, featuring video of Michael introducing the book, the complete original text with all the photographs, interactive elements, and numerous exclusive voice-captions in which the author, Michael Freeman, offers additional insights into his work.
Completely re-designed to perfectly fit the screen-size of the iPad (and, we hope, similar tablet devices soon), this is no mere e-book or PDF, but a whole new reading experience—perhaps even the future of books.
For example, one of the features of Michael Freeman’s books that readers really enjoy are his hand-drawn illustrations explaining the key elements of his photographs. Using the interactivity available on the iPad, we’re able to make this appear and disappear at will, right over the image, rather than a smaller diagram by the side, making it even easier to understand than in the book.
