DigiBook (1998)

Cleaning out my desk I came across my idea from an ebook reader circa 1998.

It was all CD based. My idea was that magazine subscribers would receive a CD in the mail from Time, Rolling Stone et al., and put the CD in the reader.

My design was bifold to replicate the aesthetics of a real book as much as possible.

E-Ink was just starting to get some exposure at the time. There had to be many people with this idea. It's a wonder it took to long to come to market.
