New Ashmolean Treasures Electronic Book
The Ashmolean Interactive Collection is a multi-touch electronic book presenting a selection of treasures from Britain’s first museum.
Through a combination of interactive 3D models and high-resolution zoom-able images, with videos, maps and textual narrative, we present entertaining and informative stories about a selection of objects from the museum collection.
The book is available for download on your iPad with iBooks, or on your computer with iTunes.
Spin the 3D & VR models around; watch video clips of talks given by the curators Catherine Whistler, Christopher Howgego, Nicholas Mayhew and Jon Whiteley; zoom into the details of beautiful works of art by Raphael, Uccello and Di Cosimo; and use the maps as an introductory guide and navigational tool when visiting the museum.
In collaboration with Hyperfine Press we highlight a selection of 15 treasures from Britain’s first museum.
