Sideways is one of the quieter and more innovative app developers, and it just released a new eBook in the iBookstore.
David Roberts’ Egypt is based on the work of a 19th century Scottish painter who traveled Egypt and the Middle East during 1838-1840. Sideways scanned lithographs made by Roberts and organized them as a narrative journey down the Nile. This eBook has 80 minutes of professional narration intercut with excerpts of David Roberts’
journals and high resolution images so that a reader can page through the eBook or view Roberts’ artistry in detail while listening to his journals.
It’s on sale in iBooks for $12.99.
