Orson: the narrated, illustrated digital book


Unique design

Exquisite illustrations, custom content and a typeset feel mean each Orson looks like itself and nothing else.


Fully synched audio book

  Narration by some of the world’s finest actors lights up the text as you move seamlessly between reading and listening.


The sound of the story

Archival tracks and exclusively commissioned pieces allow readers to hear music and speeches that relate to a scene.


Windows into the world

Illustrations can be tapped to reveal floating images that can be brought full screen, expanding the imagination’s visual horizons.


A richer experience

A pulldown menu within each Orson unveils image and video galleries, essays, maps and soundtracks that prevent distracting search excursions.
