An interactive book to display experimental 
artist books created by students at
The Cooper Union, School of Art, New York City
 
As the name tells, the book in motion is not only displaying all kinds
of different book projects, but should also be a book itself. The design takes
the 
name quite literally and aims to let the user feel as if fliping the
pages of 
a book. But while resembling a book, it still takes full advantage
of its
 non-pysical existence and modern web technologies. This allows
the pages to spread out evenly to allow an easy overview over chapters and
also
 transfroms the book in motion from a foliant on the desktop 
to a pocket book on the smart phone.

There is no conventional main navigation. Inspired by the physical

the projects are categorized by 
chapters. Each chapter is represented
by a
divider between the pages. When clicking on one of these dividers one
gets an overview ofall 
projects within this chapter.
