We are very excited to present our case study: the Merve Remix at the Frankfurt Bookfair. This collaborative research case study focussed on Merve Verlag’s back catalog (a selection of 100+ publications).

We deconstructed each publication, led by guiding questions such as: what is a book made of (recognizable traits), and what could a book become if the Pandora’s box of computation and digital networking was applied to publishing. We then translated the books into a machine readable structured document, allowing for all types of semi-automated, dynamic publishing processes to be applied—layout, multi-format conversion, distribution, rights management, reuse and remixing, translation, synchronized updates, payments and reading metrics.

For more information please check out the full description here.

We’ll be at Merve’s stand, located in Halle 3.1 – B129. Come by!
