A little while ago, my Hachette rep showed me a copy of the book The Other Hand by Chris Cleave in an interesting new design for a book. It is called a Flipback, and it is set to take on the E reader in a neat, compact form. The paper is very thin, meaning that the text can still be a reasonable size but the full book comes down to a very small package. I had to be convinced that it was the whole book, and I can assure you it is all there. There is an initial release of 11 titles of strong titles in mid July with more to come in October. They will be $20.
The titles coming soon are listed below, and check out the clip to see how they work. We will have the range in store so come in and have a look.
