Zixbook™ ”The Sensory Image”
This pioneering publishing concept is founded on the sensory image, a blend of text, picture and sound. Zixbook™ is 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. 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. Three multilingual versions are going to be created based on my texts and reportage photographs:
Zixnov™, the hybrid novel;
Zixphot™, the photo book (2011); and
Zixtoon™, the graphic novel (2008).
