Books in Browsers is a small summit for the new generation of internet publishing companies, focusing on developers and designers who are building and launching tools for online storytelling, expression, and art. Books in Browsers is produced and sponsored by UC Davis and the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Using images, immersive video, and short fragments of text, artists, historians, poets, and filmmakers are creating new experiences that inform, entertain, and speculate. The birth of this storytelling, and the creative use of a wide range of visual platforms ranging from Instagram to Snapchat, is why the Frankfurt Book Fair is pivoting the Books in Browsers conference from leading edge explorations of book design to wildly different forms of visual storytelling.
This is a storytelling world of many small pieces.
BiB VII, the next edition of Books in Browsers, examines the growing ability of users to tell small stories using self-curated, loosely coupled forms of media, increasingly created or made to be utilized on mobile devices, and addressable on the network.
This is the edge of the future of publishing, and we hope you will join us for Books in Browsers: Telling Small Stories in San Francisco, November 3-4, at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.
