But books as a concept are one thing; reading experiences designed natively for the screen are quite another.
In many instances, new media writing did not evolve with the long-established, 'safe' framework of the book in mind. As such, it appears to be of no interest to publishers, who still seem to see the world through the book's rectangular paper-based window and consider the blending of media dangerous to the clarity of pure text and typography. Not to mention the fact that there are no "big names" in new media writing. What could possibly be of interest to publishers here?
