Hybrid novels: A new way of reading narrative fiction
A hybrid novel can be seen as a hybrid image-text novel. A book where written text and graphic devices such as illustration, photography, information graphics or typographic treatments may interject in order to hold a readers’ interest. It is a kind of book that requires the readers’ actions and also to be handled and experienced. A great example is “Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” designed and crafted by Alberto Hernandez. He just finished his MA Graphic Design at London College of Communication.
