Novel Reinvention

Literature's dying print form takes on new meaning through alternative use

Implications - Increased digitalization and the rising popularity of eBooks may be concerning those with rooted preferences in print publishing. While the function of print is being overshadowed by electronic mediums, consumers still have an appreciation for the romanticism and nostalgia of books printed on paper. This lasting affection for the traditional novel is proven through art, furniture and other innovative creations using books as a medium.
