Melville House Adds Digital Content to Print Books

As Melville House releases The Duel novella series, they have added enhanced content to the print books–launching their HybridBook project.

Print readers can can download additional digital content for free using a QR code or URL included inside the print book. These “Melville House Illuminations” will sometimes be longer than the book itself.

Publisher Dennis Johnson explained in the release: ”The Illumination for the HybridBook version of Anton Chekhov’s The Duel contains an essay on dueling by Thomas Paine, poems by Lord Byron, philosophy by Nietzsche, an anti-dueling church sermon, an argument in favor of dueling by a U.S. Senator, and the rules to the game of vint—a game that plays a role in the plot … And there’s so much more—maps, cartoons, recipes, photographs, paintings—to enhance the reader’s experience.”
