(SPOT.ph) Vibal Publishing Foundation will release through iTunes an electronic version of Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere on July 1, reports GMA News. According to Vibal's Fidelis Tan, the e-book is styled like an animated graphic novel with "beautiful illustrations, an immersive score, and the option to read the tale in Spanish or English."
Tan said iPad users will have a "richer reading experience" as the love story between Crisostomo Ibarra and Maria Clara is retold with "a unique parallax effect for illustrations," making the images look three-dimensional.
Also slated for release on July 1 is Vibal's interactive e-book of the fable The Monkey and The Tortoise. The Foundation is also working on a bilingual edition of Noli Me Tangere with a "lavish" leather-bound cover and an introduction by Rizal scholar Ambeth Ocampo.
