The idea of an iPhone sized paper book, as promoted by Fliipbackbooks
, sounds appealing. So far there are about 15 Flipback Books available
. But I wonder how often such a format has been tried in the past? An iPhone 4
is 115.2 mm x 58.66 mm x 9.3 mm. A book this size would open to give a page about 115 wide by 100 mm high. The closest international standard paper size to this in common use would A7 (74 × 105 mm), as used for pocket diaries.
"Introducing the flipback: A revolutionary new book format, giving book lovers a real reading experience with the portability of a mobile phone. The flipback is a new kind of book, which opens top to bottom and has sideways-printed text, so you get a full length novel in little more than the size of an iPhone."Some books available:
