This competition has been made possible through the generosity of the iBook’s author, Ken Tregidgo.

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 Ashmolean Interactive Collection is available to download on your iPad with iBooks or on your tablet with iTunes for £4.99.

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.
