Available exclusively for iPads, the eLume bookshelf allows you to download and experience eLumes from Orson & Co.An eLume is a hand-crafted eLuminated manuscript that expands the frontiers of touchscreen storytelling without sacrificing the integrity of reading. Audio books are fully synched with the text. Illustrations can be tapped to reveal windows into the world of the story. Video and images galleries bring history into focus. And music referenced in a scene can be played on the page when you read about it. Social media and other features are integrated but not distracting. Gone is the digital photocopy effect of ebooks. Each eLume looks like itself and nothing else.Featured titles include:Harriet Sergeants Among the Hoods, narrated by Joanna LumleyTom Sanctons homage to New Orleans jazz, Song for My Fathers The dbut novel from John Steinbeck Award winner Benj Hewitt, When I Come AroundRichard Mason's "glittering confection" (NY Times), History of a Pleasure SeekerLeslie Maitland's award-winning war memoir, Crossing the Borders of TimeWe believe digital reading can be meaningful. As artists and storytellers, we are committed to tech that doesnt distract readers from the experience of books, music and art.We also believe digital books can and should be beautiful. Lovingly typeset and exquisitely designed, the eLume is at the forefront of a new medium (Departures) and has been described by the toughest critic in tech as the single best digital book interface I have seen in my life.
