Biblion: The Boundless Library - New York Public Library

Biblion: The Boundless Library is a step beyond the digital magazine. This upcoming free iPad app and website allows readers to chart their own journeys through NYPL's collections. In semi-annual issues, participants will map new ways of reading, processing information, and enjoying an immersive magazine experience. Images, text, film, audio, and more will be tied together with online communities to create new storytelling possibilities. To help celebrate the Library's Centennial, the launch issue of Biblion is all about the 1939–40 World's Fair, a fascinating juxtaposition of history and futurism. Whole areas of the fair will be recreated, with a special focus on subjects of interest to modern users - from technological innovation to classical music to pop culture, to a world dealing with the crises of war and economic hardship
