THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT_

This app is designed as a more structural version of the book: The Lifespan of a Fact by John D'Agata and Jim Fingal. Based on the intended reading order, it turns an orbital structural book into one with two modes of reading experience. Contextual elements include the book, the information about the authors, an extended discussion of deep philosophy behind the book.


This is a wireframe prototype of the app built using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS).
