Publisher Description



Skulls by Simon Winchester is a stunning, richly illustrated iPad title that advances the interactive book format pioneered by Touchpress with The Elements and Solar System.

The title features beautiful 360 degree high-resolution rotations of over 300 animal skulls collected by Alan Dudley and photographed by Nick Mann. The story behind this remarkable collection, the zoology of skulls and the place of skulls in art and popular culture are vividly recounted by Simon Winchester, author of Atlantic, Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded and The Professor and the Madman (all New York Times Best Sellers).

Simon's text is presented on the iPad screen in two formats. In portrait orientation the text is black on white optimized for reading. In landscape it is white on black, optimized for display of the beautiful visuals, with every skull spinning at the touch of your finger. New pinch zooming engineering allows smooth rotation even when objects are greatly magnified. The full text is also available spoken by the author, synchronised to the page.

Skulls by Simon Winchester features advanced interactive features including an intuitive interface for exploring the collection, revolutionary differential scrolling in the chapter pages and 3D stereoscopic presentation of every skull. There is also a powerful facility allowing up to four skulls to be compared in locked rotation side by side.

The title also includes detailed notes for every species with photographs of the living animal and links to a wealth of information from Wolfram|Alpha (internet connection required). Alan Dudley has also recorded many audio clips describing highlights from his extraordinary skull collection.

Requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPad.
