doctorow.jpgToday Tor Books launched an 81-part, illustrated digital version of of Cory Doctorow‘s upcoming novel, “Makers.”

The hardcover comes out in November from Tor.com, but the serial edition gives readers a chance to read a new excerpt every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The digital serial features original artwork created by the Idiots’ Books team (the first image is pictured here).

The 81 pieces of artwork can be re in an endless series of combination, as explained in the release: “[E]ach one a kind of tile will interconnect with the other illustrations in the series, offering limitless possibilities for mixing and matching. In a week or so, after we’ve posted a number of tiles, we’ll release a Flash game in which you will be able to re-arrange the illustration tiles on a grid and create your own combination of layouts and designs.”
