The discussion about e-books is a part of the broad topic about the digital presence of the book and how we define the book. In my thesis, I look at the issue through e-book design and give it a form in the design of Seita Vuorela's new novel Karikko. My aim is to find principles for good e-book design and think about the role of book design in the digital publishing world. Because there are no accepted rules to e-book design yet, it is essential to think about what they should be based on. E-book is not just a book gone digital, it is also a new medium for the book.

In collaboration with author Seita Vuorela, WSOY and animator Simo Ruotsalainen
