    HAMELIN 45 - Pictures on the movePictures on the Move.
    Reading Pictures in the Digital Age

    A book is a book, it is made for reading. But what can you do with an app?
    The diffusion of digital technologies urges us to wonder about how our way of reading, looking at pictures and telling stories is changing.

    This issue is born from the premises of Transbook Children’s Literature on the Move, the European project that for four years got artists and cultural operators from across Europe and beyond involved in a collective reflection on visual storytelling, the state of the book and the advent of the digital age.
