Citrus Suite has been developing a cool new app with Penguin Books US for release in February 2012.
Based on a dark picture book for mature teens imagined by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral, the app for iPad & iPhone is called Chopsticks and has already started getting some amazing pre-release press coverage.
A feature in the Wall Street Journal tiled Blowing Up the Book details the new crop of digital books that come loaded with interaction, video, audio and animation. Central to the article is Chopsticks…
Wall Street Journal
“Reading Chopsticks is like watching people kiss in the street: it’s private, it’s beautiful, it’s lonely, it’s wild, it’s secret, it’s everywhere and you can’t look away.”
Daniel Handler, author of Why We Broke Up
“Like the young artistic love it describes, Chopsticks is beautiful and strange and haunting. The story’s crooked path is made luminous by its extraordinary images.”
Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
