I read quite a lot, so I thought I’d make a minisite to collect meaningful or interesting passages from the books I’ve read. Side projects are a great way to test out new ideas, and on this project I’ve been able to play a bit with interaction media queries. Here I’m detecting whether the user’s device supports hover interactions; if not, give them regular book covers, but if hover is available, fade from low fi to high fi imagery when the user mouses over a book.
