New York Public Library meets Instagram

The New York Public Library is Turning Classic Novels Into Instagram Stories

This clever use of technology brings literature to a social platform used by 400 million people daily.

These quick animated reads are perfect for carpools, public transportation, or waiting for an appointment.

Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland, The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Franz Kafka’s novella The Metamorphosis are available now. Text sourced from Project Gutenberg and illustrated by the design firm Mother in New York.

Instagram stories disappear after 24 hours–but the NYPL’s Instagram will add all of the digital books to its “highlights” bar, which will in effect turn the NYPL’s Instagram into a digital bookshelf that readers can access at any time.
