We are very pleased to announce our new digital service—the Augmented Reality Printed Book! The AR Book combines the opportunities of digital media—audio, video, and 3-dimensional presentations—with the tradition and accessibility of the printed book.
Here’s how it works:
A free app is downloaded onto the smart phone or tablet—in either Apple (iOS) or Android. The multimedia features, such as audio and video extracts, and 3D models, launch when the smart phone or tablet screen is held up to an illustration or place on the printed page marked with a small icon—and brings the page to life!
Readers will enjoy a whole new layer of content that turns the printed book into a beautifully curated multi-media experience.
Like any other printed book, an AR Book can be bought in book shops and online, and is distributed through the well-established and successful book-selling channels.
By combining the traditional print book with an added layer of technology we are at the forefront of publishing, introducing this new approach to give the reader a richer experience, and offer anyone with valuable content the opportunity to create a new kind of product that is both instantly recognizable and also highly novel, innovative, and economically viable.
Bring to life content such as:
archival material, performance extracts, videos, interviews, music and sound examples.
We look forward to working with individuals and partnering with publishers on projects of all sizes:
Printed books with the added audio and video features
Concert programmes—with the surprise of a few music extracts
Record liner notes
Catalogues and brochures
We are very excited about the many possibilities of the AR Book and will be delighted to discuss ideas and projects.

Through the advice and guidance of professional iBook Author developers and publishing expertise, your iBook idea can reach its full potential.
Cooper Digital Publishing Ltd works in partnership with the professional and award-winning team, InkPix Media. InkPix Media Founders and Directors, James Fairclough and Harry Farnham, created the iBook, The Mozart Project, which combines text with three hours of Mozart’s music, hundreds of images, filmed performances and short form documentaries.
At the first international iBook Author Conference 2015, The Mozart Project won awards in three categories:
The Sunday Times Culture Section, Editors Pick
“Ebooks are felt to need a new market driver. Enter Fairclough and Farnham… Brilliantly interactive… The academics bring an encouraging, benign ethos that evokes the manner of great explainers such as the scientist James Jeans, or perhaps Kenneth Clark in Civilisation. This is in short, grown up technology that is content to hide behind familiar forms, rather than flaunting dull bells and whistles.”
The Daily Telegraph
“Brilliantly imaginative… Both stylish and companionable, The Mozart Project is also pure joy for the dipper and browser.”
“A completely new kind of book. An amazing achievement!”
BBC Radio 3 – Review by Royal Academy of Music students
“Presented in a terrific way… This is what justifies a project being on the iPad. I still love the paper of books, so I need a good reason, this together with the interactive content is a good reason to find this ibook.”
BBC Radio 3 on SoundCloud
Tom Service (presenter & Guardian Columnist)
“I think it does exactly what it says on the tin.’ + ‘Could this eventually supplant traditional music biography?”
BBC Classical – ★★★★★
“Inventively and colourfully compiled”
Sinfini Music – ★★★★★
“Challenges your imagination to keep up”
