The Physical Experience of The Familiar
I have heard that Danielewski will not publish this as an ebook, making sure that all readers have the same experience with page turning, etc. I assume we all have the same pink publisher copy – I am wondering if anyone has any insight into what the physical copy of the book will look like (cover design, hard cover, same size pages?)? I wonder if that will change significantly or if it will have any effect on the reader.
I ask this because there is a defined physical experience when reading this book. I can think of several instances where the layout makes the reader interact with the book itself. For example, between pages 461-513, I found the cadence with which I was turning pages seemed very intentional. Additionally, the orb chapters always have a unique experience when the orb appears within the text, never letting you forget its presence.
What other sections have others found that turns reading into a more physical experience?
