J.J. Abrams created a tactile and interactive book called “Ship of Theseus”. This is a book within a book. The first book is the main text written within the book and is an old fashioned – would be studied in school – type. The second is a commentary between two people studying the book and appears in the margins throughout. The book also holds removable items such as newspaper cuttings, postcards and notes – all adding to the stories in some way. I love this idea of being more immersed in the book by having objects that convince you the story is real.
