Novel Text for the Web

Written by Typographica on January 5, 2005

The readability of paging vs. scrolling has been studied and debated without a definite conclusion, but Coudal is hedging its bets on paging. The studio presents an excerpt of a new book, Cast of Shadows, in a two-column layout on multiple pages. Following the precedent set by the studio’s new site (launched last year), all the text is built with code — even the showy title.

Another example of this solution for long web reading can be seen at the International Herald Tribune.
