ZIXBOOK™ PUBLISHING PROJECT
I have created the Zixbook™ publishing project since 2000 out of a desire to promote education as well as cultural and artistic exchange across the world. It features the patented invention of the Zixbook™, a new book genre that revitalizes the way we read through two complementary media: hardcopy and digital. The form and content of each are designed to inspire emotion in readers and challenge their conscience. The hardcopy book comprises a series of text-image sequences. The digital version, delivered on DVD or via a downloadable file, adds a whole new dimension to the hardcopy book. Featuring a slideshow with musical accompaniment and an audio narration in several languages, it offers an enhanced and unique reading experience. Unlike conventional e-books, Zixbook™ preserves the fundamental relationship with the real, hardcopy book, and enriches it with a soundtrack and images in three different formats – real, virtual and mental.
