PUBLIC BOOKS Preview Discussion Page

13 October 2011

In our search for a beautiful and innovative form for PUBLIC BOOKS we’ve taken an arguably unique approach.

Please login and let us know what you think about the three designs in the comments section below. The discussion will continue through December 19, 2011 January 9, 2012, then the editorial office will invite one of the teams to flesh out and develop their design for the full-release version of the site in late February.
