nickcave00

Highly anticipated novel by the lead singer of The Birthday Party, The Bad Seeds and Grinderman, Nick Cave is now available in the AppStore in the form of enhanced edition audio/ebook. This Enhanced Edition of The Death Of Bunny Munro contains the full text, audiobook, and videos of Nick Cave reading from this novel. Taking the experience few steps further the audiobook uses a 3d audio spatial mix, specifically designed for listening on headphones, creating immersive experience for the listener.

Not too dissimilar to Re<cords we wrote about few days ago the Enhanced Editions is a small team made up of passionate publishers, editors, technologists, designers and film-makers with intention to expand the experience of books on mobile devices. The Death Of Bunny Munro by Nick Cave is their first book and highly recommended. As noted in the reviews, one of the few apps in the AppStore that brings real value to the iPhone experience. Is this the future of books? I truly hope so.

The Enhanced Editions. produce tailor-make ebooks for the iPhone. Stacked full of brilliant, easy-to-use features, and hours of multimedia extras, but crafted with the editorial insight that only publishers can bring to a book (900mb in total!!).
