Tales of the Jazz Age: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
About the project
Tales of the Jazz Age: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, by F. Scott Fitzgerald has been adapted into an e-book with animated illustrations and synchronized music with the aim of providing an immersive reading experience. One that is more personal, creative, social and educational. Books can have a tremendous amount of power to inspire, teach and connect people’s lives. Books should be read, shared, re-read, commented upon and used for inspiration. Our project offers a new way to enhance this experience through the use of animated visuals and thematic music that synchronizes with the audience's reading speed.
