Three New Vooks Shine a Light on Why We’re All Proud to Be Americans

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2010 — As Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals and Americans of every other political stripe head to the polls on Election Day, Vook — the leading digital publisher that lights up the world with its mixed-media reading experience — is stepping above the fray to celebrate our common heritage with the release of Visions of America: Photographing Democracy, a stunning multi-media experience that highlights the beauty and grandeur of the country we all share. For a limited time, Vook is also offering two of its best-selling classic titles free of charge so that readers can dip into the heritage of our values as they exercise their right to vote.

A Vook is a digital mixed-media form that unites words, video, pictures and interactivity into a single, integrated experience. Special Election Day Vooks available beginning today include:

  • Visions of America: Photographing Democracy, by Joseph Sohm. This epic photojournal spans Sohm’s 30-year quest to capture an image of democracy. It contains hundreds of photographs and several videos featuring the author discussing his passion for both his art and country. Vook price: $6.99.  Available from iTunes here: http://bit.ly/bOwDOO or, for iPad users, at iBooks here: http://bit.ly/97KREs
  • The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, which can be downloaded for free (until the last vote is counted) at http://vook.com/benjamin-franklins-autobiography.html
  • Lincoln Letters, also available for free for a limited time only at http://vook.com/lincoln-letters.html

“People tend to think of political expression in terms of words, but I tend to see and express democracy and politics in visual terms,” said Joseph Sohm. “A Vook provides another image-rich medium through which writers and visual artists can express themselves or capture the magic of ideas.”
