Mother and the New York Public Library are making classic literature accessible with a new series of Insta Novels in what appears to be a perfect harmony. The Insta Novels allow readers to read full book, short story, or novel. Content will be uploaded to the social media platform’s “Stories” section, which Mother and the NYPL are hoping, “make some of the world’s most classic pieces of literature more accessible to the masses.”
The background is a warm white, making it easy to read on screen, and the font is Georgia, a typeface that pays homage to the history of the written word in both print and digital, as it was one of the first ever serif fonts designed to make the reading of long-form texts on a screen both pleasing and legible.
The first book to launch as part of this new venture is Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Future releases include 'The Yellow Wallpaper', a short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and a novella by Franz Kafka.
