 “Le Monde Des Montagnes” represents yet another approach to the book form. A collaboration between illustrator Camille Scherrer and computer techs Julien Pilet, Fanny Riedo, and Nicolas Henchoz, the book bridges the gap between an actual book and a digital book in an “augmented reality” format. The actual book can be viewed normally, with text and illustrations telling the story of the world of mountains. But when connected with a computer (and we’re not sure how this connection is made), hidden animated images are revealed on the book’s pages. It’s hard to say how effective this is for the reader without having experienced the actual setup, but the video of the process  is definitely intriguing. Let us know what you think.
