Late last year, I announced a brand new site: La Noir Image. This site was tailored to lovers of Black and White Photography and had a very high emphasis on just the art. After taking a short break from it to figure out how the business is going to move forward, I announced earlier this year that it’s going to evolve into an iPad magazine. Today, La Noir Image Issue 0: the prototype is available for download free of charge. Currently it is a PDF and can be enjoyed on your computer, phone or tablet. But the final version is going to be targeted at the iPad audience.
Do keep in mind that this is only a prototype/proof of concept, and the actual iPad magazine will be a lot more like other e-Mags like the BJP: and therefore embrace the use of the web to incorporate videos. The content will also include essays and tutorials. But in the body of a standard PDF file, this is what we’re capable of doing.
If you’ve never checked out a real iPad magazine, I highly suggest that you do. It’s a much better and more immersive experience that what the web can deliver.
La Noir Image is going to turn into a full on iPad magazine designed for you to curl up with and soak in inspiration. With the help of designer Ian Pettigrew and an incredible team, this project is going to move forward to its ambitious next step: a Kickstarter. More details on this will come.
Enjoy it! And I’m very willing to hear your feedback.
