Meggs’ History of Graphic Design for iPad
The San Francisco-based Inkling makes smartbooks — interactive textbooks for the iPad. Inkling has recently undergone the incredible task of designing and (re)creating a digital, interactive version of the timeless Meggs’ classic, History of Graphic Design.
Having studied this book and made hundreds of black and white photocopies for various tests, the thought of a handy, accessible iPad version is very appealing. I think the exciting thing is that Inkling hasn’t just turned a good book into a nice PDF for the iPad. Rather, they’re utilizing the power of the technology to enhance the content of an already powerful book creating a much needed learning tool. And the design and UI/UX of the book is just so well thought out.
