ustwo™ launches PAPERCUT!

ustwo™ announces today (15 September 2011) the launch of their long-awaited PAPERCUT app – an interactive reading app for iPad which aims to immerse readers in a world of sound and narrative. We were lucky enough to see this project develop from early prototype stage through to a half-way point (presented at the FutureBook Innovation Workshop in association with The Literary Platform in June 2011), right through to the beautiful project which ustwo™ has been able to execute.
ustwo™ developed the project in collaboration with Shortfire Press, and is now making available works from three leading British authors to showcase – novelist and non-fiction writer Richard Beard, award winning Nadifa Mohamed and poet and illustrator Laura Dockrill.
What is particularly interesting about this project is how each story has a very different feel, demonstrating how an author might get excited about visualising the way they ‘see’ they’re own story.
