Lincoln Movie Documented In Disney’s New Interactive Book

Disney has created a free interactive book for the iPad as a companion to Steven Spielberg‘s new epic film Lincoln.

Lincoln: A Steven Spielberg Film – Discover the Story is designed to give readers perspective on what it was like when Abraham Lincoln served as President of the United States. It is intended to give movie goers more background on the former president’s life and policies that changed America forever.

The publisher used Apple’s iBooks Author to create the interactive eBook. Aside from Lincoln’s biographical details, it also features behind-the-scenes photos from the making of the film, as well as details about the set and costume designs, and insights from the director. There are also audio and video interviews with the production team, and costume designers. In addition, readers can purchase songs from the soundtrack from the iTunes Store directly from the eBook.
