British Library: Turning the Pages

Screenshot
Turning the Pages is a software program developed by Armadillo Studios that enables libraries and museums to digitize books, manuscripts, and other documents in an engaging 3D format. Here, readers will find the British Library's spectacular collection of items digitized with this software. The collection may be of special interest to literary scholars, religious studies scholars, historians, and book lovers of all stripes. This ample collection, which spans centuries and genres, includes highlights from Leonardo da Vinci's notebook; a handwritten and illustrated history of England authored by a thirteen-year-old Jane Austen; and diaries kept by Robert Falcon Scott during his final journey to Antarctica in 1911 and 1912 (an expedition that tragically ended in his death). In addition, this collection features a number of religious texts, Mozart's musical diary, and much more. Items are accompanied by detailed annotations that provide additional context for each page.
