Printed Books with AR features – to be published soon

Two new book titles are on the way. Firstly, the Swedish edition of A Frenchman in Stockholm 1844-45 is already available as an audiobook and ebook, both in English and Swedish, but now also is printed as a hardcover illustrated book. And secondly a brand new book with the title Matresan genom Småland (in Swedish) which is a combined guide for the culinary trip through the region of Småland as well as that it contains Smålandish recipes for your own kitchen. In addition to interesting content, both books also contain related Augmented Reality (AR) features created on our SOE PublishingLab platform.

AR is a technology that builds bridges between the physical and digital worlds. And since each book is unique and the technology is highly developmental, printed books with AR functions provide significant opportunities to reinforce and add new dimensions to the book’s content.
