The Hypothetical Library wonders why we can’t have digital book covers now that we have digital books.
So why can’t these book covers move? Essentially a cover is an image and a title. But it could be a short film, or animation, abstract or narrative. It could have music or creepy noises. It could also be a portal with links to other information, like a publisher’s backlist, or more information about the subject. It could do anything you never would think a cover could do.
Above is a sample of what the poster, Charlie Or, thinks a cover could look like.
I think its neat!
