The New York Public Library Announces Instagram Novels

The New York Public Library has started an interesting project on their Instagram page. They want to publish classical pieces of literature on Instagram stories so the young generations can read them in a familiar format.

Insta stories work as a slideshow in which every page stays on screen for 15 seconds unless you tap it with your finger to hold for longer. That’s why NYPL’s page design comes with a convenient button in the bottom right corner that the reader can hold until he’s finished with a page without covering part of the text.

Visit their Instagram to see how this project looks live with the first novel in the series: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
