PaperCanoe | Electrifying Print
The Launch of Paper Canoe

Paper­Ca­noe aims to bring sig­nif­i­cant printed works to new devices and audiences.

The mass dig­i­ti­za­tion of older books has mostly been done in an auto­mated fash­ion to date, with lit­tle if any focus being given to for­mat­ting and edit­ing specif­i­cally for the dig­i­tal for­mats. Won­der­ful projects like Guten­berg have scored Her­culean out­comes, but older books with great illus­tra­tions or more com­pli­cated for­mat­ting are get­ting the short shrift in text-only or auto­mated formats.

The awe­some view­ing expe­ri­ences of elec­tronic devices ache for bet­ter con­ver­sions. And that’s what Paper­Ca­noe is aim­ing to do. We’re just get­ting started — please let us know what you think.
