The Art of Google Books has been revamped! After using a largely unmodified version of The Atlantic since 2011, I’ve switched to the sleek and minimalist Masonite.

New features: search bar, tag cloud, easy access to the archive, front-page links to Twitter and Facebook iterations of the project, a simplified finding guide, a few new press links, and infinite scroll!

Got feedback on the new design? Just ask, or contact me through Twitter. Thanks for following!
