Art Authority adds an iBook

in Books

[prMac.com] Ashland, Oregon - The creators of the award-winning "Art Authority" app line announced today that they are shipping their first iBook through Apple's iBookStore. "Exploring Art with Art Authority" is a free companion to the popular line of classic art apps, intended to supplement and add context to what's been hailed as "an experience unlike any other."

"Exploring Art with Art Authority" is organized in the same way as the apps, with one chapter for each of the eight major art periods: Early, Renaissance, Baroque, Romanticism, Impressionism, Modern, Contemporary and American. Each chapter includes a brief summary of the period, a short movie showing off that period's "room" in the iPad app's museum, and an overview of a few of the key works from that period. A summary of the app line itself concludes the book.

"We think the new Art Authority iBook should serve as a great introduction to the app for those just getting started with it, and as a great companion for others who already know and love the app," said Alan Oppenheimer, president of Art Authority partner Open Door Networks, Inc. "The book continues our goal of helping users explore, learn about, and enjoy art in as many ways as possible."

The book is available through the iBooks app on the iPad, and the iBooks Web site. Details of all Art Authority products, including a recently demonstrated social network, currently in beta testing, are available at the Art Authority Web site.

Art Authority for iPad is the only iPad Reference app to be named to Apple's Rewind 2011 and Rewind 2010 "best of" lists. It brings over 50,000 high-resolution classic works of art to users' fingertips. Hailed as "an experience unlike any other" and "visually dazzling," the app professionally displays paintings and sculptures by over 1000 major western artists from ancient times through current-day. The app is in use by Seton Hill University and a number of other educational institutions worldwide. Art Authority for Macintosh, iPhone, and Kindle Fire bring similar functionality to these devices.

Art Authority is the product of an innovative collaboration between two separate software companies, Open Door Networks and Project A. The mission of Art Authority is the design, development and deployment of the best ways for users to experience art on their modern-day devices.
