Today publisher Little Brown and Company, a division of Hachette Book Group, announced the release of an Ansel Adams iPad app that brings together images, video, audio commentary, personal letters and postcards, and other biographical information on the pioneering photographer for the media tablet audience.
The app, Ansel Adams for the iPad, is the latest collaboration between Little, Brown and The Ansel Adams Trust, a publishing relationship Adams himself established in 1976. Andrea G. Stillman, who formerly worked with Adams and who is an expert on his work, selected the 40 photographs featured in the app, which span the full range of his career.
In a statement about the release of the app, Little, Brown claims the iPad’s “extraordinary luminosity” gives readers “a feeling and impact very similar to that of seeing an original Adams print in a museum.” Adams is famous for his meticulous printmaking, and his printed photographs are highly sought-after by collectors.
The app in on-sale for $13.99 via Apple’s iTunes digital marketplace.
