Explaining the Kindle to Charles Dickens

How would you explain an Amazon kindle to author Charles Dickens who lived before 1900? Cardiff School of Art & Design student Rachel Walsh has a clever idea, she designed 40 miniature books and placed them inside of a Victorian version of a portable reader – a hardcover book.

From the designer:

“I made the book start to finish over five days, and it took about 35 hours to make I reckon. It was pretty painstaking cutting out all the gaps in the book itself, and making the books to go inside. They’re all bound like actual books, so as I waited for them to glue and dry I would design the covers for them. All the covers are copies of real book covers. They include many of Dickens’s novels, his favorite childhood books, and some of my own.”
