Bloomsday 2.0

joyce2.jpgEvery June 16th, readers, writers, and bloggers gather in Dublin to commemorate the journey that James Joyce‘s character took around the Irish city in 1904 during the novel, “Ulysses.”

As we shuffle through this recession, most literary travelers won’t make the trip to Dublin this year. Luckily Throwaway Horse LLC has created a hyperlinked graphic novel based on the book–visualizing the novel in full-color for readers stuck behind computers.

Here’s more about the project: “‘Ulysses ‘SEEN” is the inaugural project of Throwaway Horse LLC. Throwaway Horse is devoted to fostering understanding of public domain literary masterworks by joining the visual aid of the graphic novel with the explicatory aid of the internet. By creating ‘Web 2.0′ versions of these works, we hope to proliferate and help to not only preserve them, but ensure their continued vitality and relevance.” (Via Literary Kicks)
