The Story Of The Dam Busters, A new comics-based project by Nick Spender, is now available to purchase as a download for Kindle.
Telling the story in comic-strip form, the book combines an informative narrative with the ‘retro’ style of a 1950’s adventure book. Nick has put in many finishing touches to create an authentic ‘old book’ appearance, including a ‘Richmond upon Thames Libraries’ form and a fictional cover-price of 4/6d.
Personally, I think the idea of an ebook as a modern medium presenting a real-life story and information in a purposely old-fashioned style, is both very innovative and special.
With the book already receiving good reviews from Amazon customers, there’s also an interesting article from John Freeman on Down The Tubes.
