Aaaah… the beloved Moleskine graces nubie products with its touch.
It’s amusing that once-printed books go digital for convenience, and then get thrown back into paper and leather. At the end of the day, a digital reader may be convenient, but the lack of tangible page-turning leaves something to be desired for some people; there’s just no way that oil-based products satisfy the need for touch, the way paper and leather do. Let’s slap a little leather around that Kindle, shall we?I love to watch the dance between the furious pace of digital convenience and our tenacious hold on earthly goodness. It’s as if Digital Life were a toddler dashing into new territory, new adventure, while an invisible maternal hand coaxes it back to a slower, safer, time-tested place. From a design-process standpoint, particularly as it applies to product design and user experience, this Moleskine-Kindle product solution is a great illustration that reading is not solely about communication with words, but it’s a physical engagement as well.
