A WORLD BETWEEN US INTERACTIVE EBOOK

Alongside A WORLD BETWEEN US came the daunting task of creating something interactive, a tool that would bring the historical background of the story to life. The challenge in producing this was to make sure these extras would plunge the reader deeper into the narrative experience, not disrupt their connection to the story. After much discussion, Hot Key created A WORLD BETWEEN US: MULTI-TOUCH EDITION for the iBooks platform. It features material from a vast range of public and private archives, an interview with Britain’s last surviving International Brigader, David Lomon, recorded not long before his death, and contributions from renowned Spanish Civil War and International Brigade historians Paul Preston and Richard Baxell.

Explore the history through image, sound and video in a way that enhances the text rather than distracts from it. Plunge into the riot of colour, sound and emotion that characterised the Spanish Civil War. Immerse yourself in the experiences of the ‘volunteers for liberty’.
