The Multiplayer Storybook

I spent the first half of 2018 writing my master thesis at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. This is the end result, an explorative study about digital children’s books.

This online version is supposed to be a living document where I can add updates and corrections if and when they are needed – the flexible “director’s cut” I wanted to write, but didn’t have time for. (Still haven’t got any time, but the idea is sound!)

It’s been slightly re-formatted for online readability, but if you’re a stickler for “the original”, warts and all, feel free to check out my thesis paper as delivered.
