italian journal manufacturer moleskine and fiftythree, the company best known for their award winning ‘paper’ application, have collaborated to create ‘book’, a new service that brings your digital ideas to life as a custom-made hardcover notebook. the format has been designed uniquely for the paper iPad app, which allows users to print 15 foldout pages of their sketches onto FSC-certified matte paper. the print-on-demand publishing system has been developed to match the iPad’s 4:3 aspect ratio; there is no need to re-size pages, and the user chooses which of their personal drawings should become the journal’s cover artwork. in less than two weeks, for 40 USD, you can receive a handcrafted book made with high-quality HP Indigo 4-color digital prints.

 

to see more on how ‘book’ works, see the video below.
