Rachel Walsh, a second year illustration student at Cardiff School of Art & Design, was given an assignment to “explain something modern/internet based to someone who lived and died before 1900”. She decided that Victorian era author Charles Dickens needed to be schooled on Amazon’s Kindle wireless electronic reading device. To do so, she cleverly devised a way for a big book to hold forty miniature books and did so by cutting spaces in the pages to hold the shrunken titles. The end result is simply beautiful and certainly illustrates an e-reader to someone not at all familiar with technology.
