The New York Public Library is globalizing its reach with a newly launched initiative, “Insta Novels,” available to anyone with an Instagram app. “Stories” are being given new meaning on the social platform, with full-length prose being posted on the library’s Instagram story with accompanying animated illustrations and graphics.
The first novel published to the social media service is Lewis Carroll’s 1865 novel, Alice in Wonderland. The surreal Wonderland-inspired graphics were designed by conceptual illustrator Magoz.
The NYPL says they had hoped to mimic the feel and layout of classic books on the screen, with the innovative and engaging element of artistic design on select “pages.”
