Reading a book on Oyster is a distinctly digital experience, and yet, it doesn’t feel soulless or straining in the way reading on a screen often can be. This is largely due to Van Lancker’s thoughtful approach to the app’s design, which ties in his experience typesetting books during college. “There are things that people hold onto emotionally with books that we should carry over, and there are things we should leave to print >books,” he explains. – Wired
